Are you ready for next week’s City Planning Commission public hearing on the East Village/Lower East Side rezoning and the Willets Point development? Here are some links to help get you caught up on the latest:

East Village/Lower East Side rezoning:

The Daily News walked the rezoning area with CPC Chair Amanda Burden.

City Room interviewed some local groups that support the plan this week, and covered the Coalition to Protect Chinatown and the Lower East Side’s protest of the plan back in July.

Willets Point redevelopment:

In July, the Queens Gazette covered Community Board 7’s approval of the project, and we covered the board’s recommended modifications to the plan.

The Queens Ledger covered the Queens Borough President’s hearing, with summaries of both the opposing and supporting sides.

Most recently, the Queens Courier reported, BP Marshall and EDC announced a plan to support minority-owned, female-owned, and Queens-based businesses in the redevelopment process.
