Here’s a reminder: Wednesday night is one of your last chances to speak out about the Seward Park Mixed-Use Development plan before a crucial Community Board 3 vote next month. In the past few weeks, the city officially unveiled the land use application for the monumental residential and retail project that would reshape the Lower East Side.
There will be a town hall meeting Wednesday at University Settlement, 184 Eldridge Street. The discussion will cover the land use document, which details a master plan for nine parcels adjacent to the Williamsburg Bridge. Comments and questions will also be taken concerning a separate document guiding a sweeping environmental review of the Seward Park site.
If you would like to submit a question or express an opinion, send an email to SPURA@cb3manhattan.org. The submission deadline is the end of the day tomorrow. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. There will be a separate session from 5-6 p.m. in which members of the public may ask city officials technical questions about the land use documents.
On May 22, CB3 will vote on the ULURP (Uniform Land Use Review Procedure) application. If it approves, the Manhattan Borough President, the City Planning Commission and the City Council will have chances to weigh in before the process concludes next fall. If the plan is approved, the city is expected to put out a request for proposals from developers early next year.
For a review of the plan, take a look at our previous coverage.
