Here are some of the topics Community Board 3 will be taking up in the month of September:
–On Thursday, September 2 before the health and human services committee, there will be an update from Mount Sinai. As you may recall, the big hospital conglomerate announced earlier this summer that it was abandoning plans to close Beth Israel, downsizing its footprint in the neighborhood. Now in the aftermath of Covid, it is planning to modernize the hospital.
–At the same meeting, three organizations — Goddard Riverside, Housing Works and Community Access — will talk about, “local initiatives and opportunities for joint operations.”
–On Tuesday, September 7, the transportation committee will consider an intercity bus application for Go Go Sun Tour, Inc., which wants to operate from the curb at 125 East Broadway.
–Also at the transportation committee meeting, the local nonprofit, UA3, will request a 25-foot loading zone on Suffolk Street. The group has been running a food pantry out of its building on Grand Street.
–On Thursday, September 9 the parks and waterfront committee will receive updates from city officials on the East Side Coastal Resiliency Project and the vessel docking site at Pier 36.
–On Tuesday, September 21, a joint committee meeting will be held to continue consideration on a citywide zoning text amendment to facilitate permanant expanded outdoor dining.
–On Wednesday, September 22 the State Liquor Authority Committee will take up numerous applications. You can have a look at the applications here.
–On Monday, September 27, CB3 will hold its annual budget priorities meeting, which theoretically helps shape city spending in the coming year.
