Officials from the mayor’s office will be attending, and the public meeting is co-sponsored by Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and City Council member Margaret Chin.

–Also tonight, Community Board 3 will be resuming deliberations on the proposed mega-towers coming to the Two Bridges neighborhood. The board will decide how it will respond to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the four towers. There will also be a presentation on a proposed text amendment from Borough President Brewer and Council member Chin that would mandate a full land use review of the projects.
