Here’s What’s Happening at Community Board 3 This Week
There’s a lot going on at Community Board 3 this week. Here’s a look ahead:
–This evening (Tuesday) the State Liquor Authority Committee will be reviewing an application from the team behind Nine Orchard, the hotel opening in the historic Jarmulowsky Bank Building next year. Neighborhood activists have been mobilizing against the hotel, which has filed for multiple liquor permits. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. and will be held at Perseverance House Community Room, 535 East 5th St.
–Also tonight, the transportation committee will be discussing the 3-year closure of Suffolk Street at Delancey Street to accommodate construction at Essex Crossing. There will also be more discussion about the looming L Train shutdown, the city’s decision to turn portions of Pier 36 and East 10th Street into a parking facility for garbage trucks and an update on efforts to alleviate Grand/Clinton Street traffic gridlock. This meeting takes place at 6:30 p.m., Seward Park Extension, 56 Essex St.
–Tomorrow night (Wednesday), there’s a meeting of the Baruch Bath House Task Force. The city is seeking proposals from developers to reactivate (and probably tear down the historic building). The task force meets at the Baruch, 605 Baruch Drive, 6:30 p.m.
–On Thursday at 6:30 p.m. the Parks Committee meets to go over plans from the city for more reconstruction at East River Park and to discuss a plan from GOLES/Rebuild by Design for a park stewardship proposal along the East River. The committee meets at BRC Senior Center, 30 Delancey St.
