CB3 Wrapup

We've already reported some of the news from last night's Community Board 3 meeting (see below). Here's a recap of the other noteworthy items discussed:

  • Dominic Pisciotta was re-elected as chairman of CB3. He held off a challenge from Barden Prisant, winning 29-12.
  • Pisciotta announced that the community boards appear to have (mostly) dodged the Bloomberg administration's budget cuts. The reduction in next year's budget will be less than 2-percent, unless there's a need for mid-year reductions. Each board will receive about $198,000.
  • CB3 has sent a letter to Councilman Alan Gerson's office expressing disappointment that it wasn't included in a recent meeting to discuss the potential rezoning of the Bowery.
  • A committee vote will take place next month on a set of principles for the redevelopment of the Seward Park Urban renewal Area. 
  • Borough President Scott Stringer and Councilman Alan Gerson have provided funding for the rebuilding of the ABC No Rio art center.
