Here’s What’s Happening at Community Board 3 in September
You’re probably thinking about barbecues and those last trips to the beach as we head into Labor Day weekend. But after the holiday, it will be a busy month for Community Board 3. Here are some of the highlights from CB3’s recently released meeting agendas.
–On Tuesday, Sept. 17, the land use committee will take up the ULURP (land use) application for a proposed 30-story mixed-use project at 60 Norfolk St. That’s the site of the fire-ravaged Beth Hamedrash Hagadol synagogue.
–On Thursday, Sept. 5 the health and human services committee will consider “certificate of need” applications for Mount Sinai’s new scaled-down hospital replacing Beth Israel and the conversion of the former Rivington House facility into a behavioral health center. At the same meeting, the Alliance for Positive Change, which provides services for New Yorkers with HIV, will discuss its plans to relocate to 35 East Broadway.
–On Sept. 9, the arts and cultural affairs subcommittee will finalize plans for a Sept. 23 town hall regarding the long battle to re-establish the Charas/El Bohio Cultural Center.
–On Tuesday, Sept. 10, the transportation committee will consider applications from two companies for new intercity bus stops on Pike Street near East Broadway.
–On Thursday, Sept. 12, the parks committee will hear the city’s plans to improve the pick-up/drop-off area in front of Basketball City at Pier 36. There will also be presentations on the city’s controversial resiliency plans along the East River. And a group looking to complete a least a portion of the neglected Allen/Pike Street pedestrian malls will make their initial pitch to the board.
–On Sept. 25, there will be a meeting of the Baruch Bathhouse Task Force.
