A fact for your consideration:
Since the creation of the Project Review Special Permit in 2001, the Planning Board has never voted to deny a developer’s application for Sec. 19.20 zoning relief, with 49 approvals, 0 denials, and 2 withdrawals during the recession of 2003.
Think about it: NO very large project has been deemed a detriment to traffic and EVERY large project adheres to the urban design guidelines.
Seriously? Then I’ve got a bridge to sell you!
Come to City Hall Annex (344 Broadway) tonight (8/5) at 7pm to hear the Carlone petition’s case for giving the City Council final say over this category of special permit while the city develops a new Citywide Master Plan.
