Community Board 2 schedules Public Hearing on 80 Flatbush Avenue Project

As the review process for the 80 Flatbush Avenue development project moves forward, Senator Montgomery encourages neighbors and community stakeholders to participate in the upcoming Community Board 2 (CB2) public hearing.

CB2 has scheduled a public hearing on applications filed with the Department of City Planning by the Educational Construction Fund (ECF) and 80 Flatbush Avenue LLC.  The applications seek approvals to facilitate the phased redevelopment of the block bounded by Schermerhorn Street, Flatbush Avenue, State Street and 3rd Avenue with new residential, community facility and commercial development that will include a new, larger facility for an existing public high school currently located on the block as well as a new elementary school.

The hearing will be held as follows:

          Date: Wednesday; March 28, 2018 
          Time: 6:00-9:00 pm 
          St. Francis College 
          Founders Hall (the college auditorium) 
          180 Remsen Street (between Clinton and Court streets) 
          Brooklyn, New York

Community Board 2 is holding this hearing to provide the public with the opportunity to comment on the applications described below. Notice of this public hearing will be publicized in The City Record. Community Board 2 will send this notice to the local and citywide press and addressees on the board's distribution lists. Community groups and individuals representing all segments of the community are encouraged to participate.

Groups and individuals who are unable to attend the public hearing, or for any reason would like to submit written testimony, are encouraged to submit statements in writing by Friday, March 30, 2018 via email, facsimile or mail to the following:
