Coalition to Protect LES/Chinatown Press Conference


On Tuesday, July 15, 2008, Luke Henry joined local activists in advocating for increased community involvement in the LES/East Village rezoning process. The rezoning plan has already been approved by Community Board 3 and is awaiting the approval of the Borough President, City Council, and the Mayor. The rezoning process has not, to date, carefully enough addressed the impact that the plan will have on surrounding areas. It does not sufficiently protect the low-income families and small businesses that are most adversely affected by the plan. Luke Henry believes that it is incumbent upon the elected officials, whose approval is required for the process to move forward, to exert their influence to ensure that the plan meets the needs of all people affected by rezoning.
