“We are not embarking on a mission to build towering skyscrapers where they don't belong. We have a duty to protect and preserve the culture and character of our neighborhoods.”
Guess who said that last February?! Mayor de Blasio!
But somehow the Mayor has lost his way and now he is supporting building high-rise towers right next to our historic low-rise brownstone community.
At Wednesday's community meeting, hundreds of our Cobble Hill neighbors and friends made their feelings loud and clear: No towers in Cobble Hill! Our representatives heard our message and they are behind us 100 percent in this truly momentous effort to stop Fortis Property Group from building their high-rises on the site of the former Long Island College Hospital.
Now we need to make sure Mayor de Blasio hears us, too! Toward that end, we are petitioning Mayor de Blasio to work with us— not against us— in our efforts to significantly downscale the current redevelopment plans. We've already collected hundreds of signatures, but we needs several times that to make an impact.
Please read our petition and-- if you agree— add your vitally needed voice to our campaign. There are two ways you can participate.
1. Please print out a copy of our petition, sign, and mail to: Cobble Hill Association, 123 Congress Street 11201 (or you can drop through the mail slot).
2. Access and sign our petition online. (Your email will be your signature.)
All the community's signed petitions will be delivered directly to the Mayor's office.
Please sign today! The sooner these petitions reach the Mayor the better!
And THANK YOU! for being a part of our community.
