Rosie’s Testimony on ZQA and MIH 12/16

At the December Borough Board meeting Rosie was the sole Council Member to vote in support of the Borough Board Resolution opposing the Zoning for Quality and Affordability (ZQA) and Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) proposals currently making their way through the ULURP process. Rosie also attended the December 16th City Planning Commission public hearing on ZQA and MIH at the Museum of the Native American. Rosie’s testimony highlighted the importance of Community Board Resolutions and the need for ongoing engagement around these proposals. Rosie also took the opportunity to remind the Commission of the thoughtful comments submitted by community boards, particularly the community boards in the 2nd Council District—CBs 2, 3, 5, and 6. Her testimony, included in this handout, highlights the serious concerns Rosie has about ZQA and MIH. We hope to see responsive modifications from CPC as these proposals make their way to the Council.
