Reminder: Critical Public Hearing Tonight
We hope you can join us for an incredibly important community board public hearing tonight that will affect the future of both the South Village and Hudson Square. It’s at 6:30 tonight at the Saatchi Building at 375 Hudson Street, Ground Floor, ‘S’ space (facing King Street).
The City is moving ahead with a plan to rezone Hudson Square, but without necessary landmark protections for the neighboring South Village and appropriate height limits for new development. We need to change this!
You can read more about the proposed Hudson Square Rezoning and its potential impact upon the South Village here and can read an op-ed in today’s Villager newspaper outlining why it is so important that we make changes to the proposed rezoning and ensure that it is coupled with landmark protections for the South Village.
If you can’t make tonight’s meeting (or even if you can), please come to the second public hearing on the Hudson Square rezoning on Wednesday, September 19th at 6:30 pm at the Fire Museum, 278 Spring Street (Varick/Hudson Streets), 3rd floor.
In the meantime, please write to City officials who will vote on the plan and urge them to lower the height limits, and ONLY approve the plan IF landmark designation for the South Village also moves ahead.
