Worried about the city’s budget priorities? Community Board 15 is holding their public hearing tonight on 2012’s preliminary budget. With input from board members and the community, they’ll be making recommendations to the Mayor through the Borough Board and Borough President about how to better prioritize services and cuts throughout the district.
There are also two public hearings related to building developers seeking special permits in the area. One of them is at 1810 Voorhies Avenue, a three-story office and retail building that’s been stalled for some time. Construction began moving again a few months ago, and it seems they’re now looking for permission to reduce the required parking for the project. The other project to be discussed at tonight’s meeting is a residence at 2255 East 2nd Street, whose owners would like to enlarge their home.
The meeting is tonight at 7:00 p.m. in Kingsborough Community College’s Faculty Dining Room (2001 Oriental Boulevard).
