Petition: No Upzoning for 1620 Cortelyou Road


Demolitions and development are changing the character of our neighborhood without really addressing affordability or the need to more services and infrastructure.

PS 139, 330 Rugby Road

The developer can already build a sizable building here and include all the "affordable" units they want. They do not need an upzoning to make millions and create residential units.  Every upzoning undermines the existing zoning which allows for ample development already.  Downtown Brooklyn size and scale development is not appropriate here.

They want to build 45 feet higher than allowed and an 87% larger building than allowed --that is  almost double the size of an allowable building!

In addition, the site is potentially contaminated, as the environmental assessment shows, but there is not a comprehensive investigation into it, let alone an in-depth cleanup program proposed.

In the end, it is really up to the local Council member who has the power in ULURP.
