Huge Crowd Attends CB7 Meeting 5/2
A crowd estimated at 350 people attended the May 2nd Community Board 7 meeting at Broadway at 110th Street. Officials grew concerned about the size of the crowd and restricted admittance to the building due to fire codes. A long line of area residents waited patiently on West 110th Street in the brisk evening air and--eventually--gained admittance. Dozens of neighborhood residents addressed Board members directly during the public session, urging members to support 8A zoning for Broadway and 8B zoning for the side streets to protect the area's brownstones. Residents called for swift action from the Board and demanded that a resolution in support of 8A and 8B be passed at the Board's June meeting.
