Rosie Mendez and Margaret Chin are calling on the New York City Housing Authority to improve community outreach as it goes forward with a plan to lease land to private developers. At a press conference tomorrow, the City Council members will demand more time before a Request For Proposal is released, so that residents can review a draft of the document. They’ll also ask the housing authority to submit to a Uniform Land Use Review Procedure involving input from community boards as well as the Borough President, City Planning Commission, and City Council. Other demands are outlined in a press release here.
