Charter Revision Commission hearing Thursday on land use
Atlantic Yards Report
The New York City Charter Revision Commission meets tomorrow night, June 24, to hear testimony on whether land use reform should be part of the charter revision on the ballot later this year.
It will begin at 6 pm at the Flushing Branch, Queens Borough Public Library, 41-17 Main Street, Flushing.
As with previous hearings, it will begin with expert testimony but later accept brief public testimony (with time limits). The hearing will be streamed and archived.
Many commentators have suggested that the commission--which, despite outreach, has been pretty much under the radar--stick to very simple proposals, such as term limits, given the complexity of such issues as land use.
