Youth, Education and Cultural Affairs Committee Voted 9–0 in Favor Of Dock St Dumbo


[UPDATE: CB2 Land Use Committee Meeting info below.]

Community Board 2’s youth, education and cultural affairs committee voted 9–0 to support the inclusion of a public middle school within the Dock Street Dumbo Project if the controversial building also gets approved, says The Brooklyn Paper this morning. “The Community Board’s land use committee will cast the larger vote — to approve or deny the building itself — in a rare Saturday morning meeting. The proposal would then move to the full board in January.”

The Land Use Committee Meeting will be held on Saturday, Dec 20, 2008 at 10am. Per the CB2 update to DumboNYC:

I am writing to inform the members of Community Board 2 and it’s Land Use Committee that the committee’s meeting – originally planned for Wednesday past, following the community board’s public hearing on the “Dock Street DUMBO” mixed-use development project – has been re-scheduled for 10:00 a.m., Saturday, December 20, 2008, in the Callahan Center, St. Francis College, 180 Remsen Street (Clinton and Court streets). The Callahan Center is the area between the entry lobby and auditorium.

Also noted is that the committee meeting is not a continuation of the public hearing or other public forum. The meeting is open to the public pursuant to the New York State Public Officers Law, but is being held so the Land Use Committee may discuss and make a recommendation on the “Dock Street DUMBO” development project.
