A Look at November’s Community Board 3 Agenda

IMG_1669

Here’s what’s coming up at Community Board 3 in the month ahead.

–At CB3’s transportation committee meeting Nov. 13, the city’s Department of Transportation will outline plans for expansion of the Citi Bike network. Several months ago, the mayor’s office announced that about 1200 bikes would be added as part of the L Train shutdown plan. There’s expected to be a concentration of bikes near the Williamsburg Bridge.

–On Nov. 1, the human services committee will hear a plea to stop the displacement of the Community Healthcare Network’s Catherine Abate Center at 150 Essex St. The center has a lease until 2021, but the site is slated to become the last piece of the big Essex Crossing project (luxury condos are planned here).

–On Nov. 8, community groups pushing for a rezoning of the Two Bridges area (under siege from developers with grandiose plans) will update their progress before the land use committee.

–On Nov. 15, the parks/waterfront committee will discuss the community impacts from the city’s decision to take over more of Pier 36 for garbage truck parking.
