De Blasio Zoning Plan Unites Civic Groups in Opposition

(DNAINFO) Danielle Tcholakian and Amy Zimmer  | November 17, 2015 — Greenpoint resident Steve Chesler has spent many evenings lately attending community board meetings across the city.

He and other members of North Brooklyn’s Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park are trekking to East New York, the West Village, Flushing and beyond to urge board members to vote against Mayor Bill de Blasio’s proposed zoning changes.

De Blasio insists the changes will help the city build 80,000 new units of affordable housing as well as preserve 120,000 affordable units over the next 10 years.
