Have you ever wondered exactly why we have all these public hearings and community board meetings about development projects in our neighborhood? Well, there’s this funny thing called ULURP that all of us need to learn more about!
The Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) is a public process that gives community boards, elected officials, planning agencies and people like you the power to participate in decision making about development and zoning changes that shape our neighborhoods.
Why do some government bodies have the power to make decisions during ULURP while others can only make recommendations? How can West Siders use ULURP to ensure development serves our community needs?
WSNA is hosting an interactive, bilingual workshop on Thursday, March 26th to answer these questions and more!
This workshop training is especially recommended for anyone involved in WSNA’s P.S. 51 and 11th Ave Rezoning campaigns. We want to empower P.S. 51 parents, staff and all community members to fully participate in the upcoming ULURP processes
What: WSNA workshop on shaping community development
When: Thursday, March 26th from 6:30 – 8:30 PM
Where: 300 West 46th St. (southwest corner of 8th Ave)
The workshop is free, but you must RSVP (space is limited). Contact Lucas at: LShapiro@hcc-nyc.org or 212-716-1664.
