The Woodhaven Residents Block Association will host a presentation by the NYC Department of City Planning on Saturday, January 21st at 1 PM. The meeting will be held at the Woodhaven Volunteer Ambulance Corps (78-15 Jamaica Avenue).
The new zoning laws will determine the size and shape of Woodhaven in the very near future. The question is -- do you want Woodhaven to expand housing, to expand development in the resedential areas. The current proposal seeks to discourage development -- to avoid furthering the overcrowding that has resulted in limited parking, more noise and traffic, more garbage and a depletion of services. Schools are already complaining of overcrowded classes -- the city has been looking to cut down on services such as transit and firefighting.
Think of how much worse these problems will be with apartment houses, or extra-large housing popping up all over the place.
This is your best chance to learn about this proposal -- and show support for it to protect your investment in this community. If you won't speak up to protect your investment, to protect your family, to protect your family -- what exactly will you speak up for?
Saturday, January 21st at 1 PM is your chance to speak up.
