What are you doing tonight? Development and environmental meetings tonight

by Heather Van De Mark on

A quick reminder that tonight two important meetings are happening that will directly impact the future of North Brooklyn.

Domino Development
On the southside of town, Community Board 1 will be continuing its public hearing on the Domino ULURP. If you missed the first part of the meeting which included a presentation by Two Trees and a few community responses, read the recap here.

In brief, Two Trees is requesting a special permit to change zoning regulations and a landmarks application to adapt the Domino refinery building. For full view details, view the CB1 agenda [PDF]. If you want to familiarize yourself with the broader history of the Domino development, check out these related posts on the Domino Sugar Factory.
