On Tuesday August 25th at 7pm, multiple grassroots groups in Queens will be co-hosting a People’s Town Hall. The focus is to stop the multiple large-scale development projects across the western region from Long Island City to Flushing.
This event stems from the anti-democratic nature of how these projects have thus-far been planned, without much real input from community members. As well, these projects will cause harm to vulnerable communities in post-Covid Queens due to the lack of deep affordability and inequitable environmental impacts.
The first part of the event will be an overview of the projects and the shared concerns across the groups, followed by an open discussion where attendees are invited to voice their concerns, needs, and hopes for development in the region.
RSVP at ourlic.nyc to receive the Zoom info.
We will also be streaming the event on Facebook Live: https://tinyurl.com/qnstownhall.
