Speak Out for Sunset Park

Help with the outreach prior to the public hearings regarding the rezoning in Sunset Park. See below for the organizer's contact information.

from the SPAN email:


Important dates have been announced by Community Board 7 concerning Dept. of City Planning's proposed rezoning plan of Sunset Park. This is the first step in the process to approve a rezoning plan that will displace current residents and small businesses in Sunset Park.

We will be there to speak out on our concerns about this plan. Please join us on these dates and on Saturday, May 9th to do outreach in the neighborhood. (If you want to distribute literature on May 9th with us please email directly to for the time and location)

What we want: Dept of City Planning recently undertook a rezoning in Bay Ridge that better protects the community and even downzones certain areas. Our priority is a comprehensive plan that encompasses the entire community so we can find solutions to preserve and create housing affordable to the long-time working residents of Sunset Park. We want equal protection for our neighborhood.

Sat, May 9th, (afternoon)
Join us to do outreach in the neighborhood
