Brooklyn activist Alicia Boyd and others filed a lawsuit yesterday to prevent The Department of City Planning from certifying 960 Franklin Avenue, Brooklyn. The Department of City Planning (DCP), on November 16, 2020, is scheduled to approve and begin the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) for 960 Franklin Ave, Brooklyn. This action is in direct violation of the New City Charter Reform passed into law on November 3, 2019.
The Department of City Planning violated this law by refusing to submit a “detailed summary” of the application to be certified 30 days before it is approved. These actions violate the public’s due process rights, which is the right to review public records and influence the outcome of this rezoning before it is certified.
