This Wednesday, March 4 at 9 am (note the early start time), the City Planning Commission will hold a public hearing. Among the items being heard are the following big projects:
- The Waterfront Text Amendment: a citywide zoning proposal that will affect public access to the waterfront, and implement design guidelines for waterfront areas.
- The Fordham Lincoln Center Master Plan: a multi-year, $1 billion proposed master plan to add 1.5 million square feet of academic, student activities and dormitory space at Fordham Univeristy’s Manhattan campus.
- Two Trees’ proposed development on Dock St. in DUMBO: This controversial project recently got approval from Brooklyn’s Community Board 2, largely because it includes a middle school. However, opponents say it will block historic views of the Brooklyn Bridge.
