According to notices posted today at the Brooklyn Heights Library branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, on Tuesday October 7 in the Borough Hall Community Room, 3rd Floor (209 Joralemon Street) the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) for the Brooklyn Heights Project will meet to hear about developer selection for the Brooklyn Heights Redevelopment Project and learn next steps involved in the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) for this project as well as a proposed interim library space.
This discussion is open to the general public and comments from the audience will be permitted after the CAC discusses this complex and multi-faceted proposal, which includes: a 40+ story residential tower housing a new 21,000 square foot library to be built on the current site; 114 units of affordable housing at a separate location; and an interim library to be located at Our Lady of Lebanon Church.
Borough President Eric Adams plans to attend, depending upon his schedule. Jo Anne Simon, the Democratic nominee for the 52nd Assembly District, also hopes to attend, schedule permitting.
Jim Vogel, representing New York State Senator Velmanette Montgomery is confirmed as is Casey Adams, representing New York City Council Member Stephen Levin. Also expected to attend are representatives from Citizens Defending Libraries.
