Suggestions on Proposed Special Coney Island District


While we have concerns about some areas of the proposed planning initiative, we applaud the work that has gone into crafting this ambitious plan. We strongly support the opening of the area to new residential and retail development, the extension of the City’s Inclusionary Housing program, and the effort to create a permanently protected amusement area. These are all key components for the future vitality of this waterfront neighborhood. We hope the ongoing dialogue with Brooklyn Community Board 13 and local property owners will have positive results for this initiative.
