The all-important Landmarks Preservation Commission hearing on the proposed massive Gansevoort Street development will be this coming Tuesday, November 10.
This is the big one! It is the only public hearing that the Landmarks Preservation Commission will hold before deciding whether to approve or deny this plan.
Tuesday, November 10, 3:30 PM (note that time has changed)
1 Centre Street, 9th floor (the Municipal Building at Chambers St.)
Entrance on South end of building near subway station, ID required for entry.
We need your help to pack the hearing room. Nothing is more powerful than a strong turn-out of community members expressing their opposition to this project. Join us and tell LPC why you believe this plan for a massive transformation of landmarked Gansevoort Street would destroy the historic character of the district. Even if you don’t wish to speak, it’s important that you be present. We will have stickers for people to wear to display their opposition to this proposal, and you will be able to state that you oppose the proposal when you sign in.
If you can’t come when the hearing starts around 3:30, please come later – you will be able to speak if you sign in before 4:00 pm, and you will be able to enter the hearing room and show support if you arrive before 5:00 pm.
FREE TRANSPORTATION: We will have a free bus to the hearing leaving from 73 Horatio Street (outside the West Village Nursery School) on Tuesday at 2:30. The hearing will take several hours after which the bus will travel back to Horatio. If you want to use this bus, please RSVP with your name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org
