In the Rezone

New, 3 comments

The City Planning Commission was all set to vote on a proposal to rezone parts of Bedford and Franklin avenues in Crown Heights?a plan that would affect some 50 blocks, limiting building heights and incentivizing affordable housing?until a community group materialized with some major opposition. They're ex-Occupy Wall Streeters who call themselves the Crown Heights Assembly, and they want further protections and promises on the affordable housing front, as well as baked-in clauses that will deter tenant harassment.
