OPEN MEETING ABOUT PROPOSED TOWER AT 80 FLATBUSH AVENUE

NOV. 13, 2017, 7:30PM AT THE LAFAYETTE AVENUE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
Side entrance: 85 South Oxford Street (between Lafayette/Fulton Street). Doors open at 7pm.

At our November 2016 open meeting, “Fort Greene & NYC Neighbors Look to the Future,” representatives from Downtown Brooklyn Partnership and New Yorkers for a Human-Scale City discussed some of the pros and cons of high-rise development in Downtown Brooklyn.

The purpose of the Nov. 13, 2017 meeting is to continue this discussion as it relates to this new proposal for 80 Flatbush Avenue – a 74-story building on a full block site bordering Flatbush, Schermerhorn, State and Third Aves. Concerns include the scale of the project as it abuts a low-rise brownstone neighborhood, the blocking of sight lines of the Williamsburgh Clock Tower, and adverse environmental impacts.

See details of 80 Flatbush developer’s plan at www.80Flatbush.com

See Boerum Hill Association’s petition against plan at boerumhillassociation.org

Also on the agenda:
• Fort Greene Park Update: View their two new videos at Friends of Fort Greene Park
• Express Bus Lane on Fulton Avenue Eliminating Parking Spaces

HELP US STOP THE CRIMINALIZATION PROCESS

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Help publicize Begin Again – the District Attorney’s program that stops the criminalization cycle by disposing of outstanding summonses and summons warrants. We want to make sure that everyone in our community who can benefit knows about Begin Again.

Your assignment: distribute flyers about the program for 2 hours between now and April 13. Let us know when you can help, and if you can print out leaflets or want us to get them to you. We will give you a specific assignment so that activities of volunteers are coordinated and we get great coverage.

Also, let us know about neighbors and organizations that also can help get the word out to people likely to benefit.

Contact JED MARCUS or KATRICE CLERMONT at INFO@ONECOMMUNITYNYC.ORG OR 718-643-6555.

More about the Program: Begin Again can free people who find their lives limited by low-level criminal matters. There is no risk in participating. Participants have to attend on April 14 or 15. Preregistration is encouraged to speed their processing. A downloadable flyer with information is available below.
