This afternoon, the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. will be holding a public meeting to solicit input about a $200 million pot of federal money to be dispersed in the months ahead. Today’s event takes place in the Assembly Hearing Room, 250 Broadway, from 4pm-7pm.
The LMDC board has already formed three committees to look into potential projects in these general areas: cultural and community; economic development and housing; and infrastructure and open space.
Separately, the organization has held two information sessions to outline plans for a $17 million “Community and Cultural Enhancement Program.” At the first of those sessions, representatives from dozens of organizations (many on the LES) crowded into a meeting room at the LMDC’s offices — in search of guidance about what sorts of projects the LMDC intends to fund.
