Rob Hollander, of Lower East Side Residents for Responsible Development, has posted some concerns about DCP’s proposed East Village/Lower East Side Rezoning over at Historic District Council’s blog. Among them: how to guarantee the creation of new affordable housing. According to Hollander, the rezoning will cause, “displacement of residents and businesses, loss of light, context and history without benefit to the local community. This feature of DCP’s Final Scope of Work is contrary to every principle and goal with which CB3 entered the rezoning project.” Check out CB3’s Zoning Task Force page for more information.

The Community Board 3 Zoning Task Force will meet tomorrow, March 19 at 6:30 pm, at 273 Bowery at Houston Street, to discuss the rezoning.
