Here’s an answer to a previous post’s question, Where is Carl Weisbrod? There will be a new city planning commissioner on March 1, but we can still ask Weisbrod why he hasn’t certified the rezoning plan for Sutton Place.
After all, it was submitted by the East River 50s Alliance two months ago.
The plan would block a ludicrous proposal to build a megatower in the middle of leafy 58th Street, right off Sutton Place. It would also promote more affordable housing than current rules require.
Weisbrod to appear on community participation panel
Weisbrod will be appearing tomorrow on a panel discussion sponsored by The New York Landmarks Conservancy. Its apt title is “Planning, Preservation and Community Participation.” East Siders attending may have an opportunity to ask Weisbrod the question on Sutton Place’s mind. Why no response to the rezoning plan, an exemplary example of planning and community participation?
