Join Us on August 18th to Stand Up for Good Jobs & Affordable Housing

Rama Campbell, painter and drywall taper pictured above, will be one of a number of Brooklyn residents standing up for good jobs and affordable housing on the Brooklyn Heights Library development on August 18th. The library is being sold to the Hudson Companies, a private developer for $52 million. The developer plans to renovate and reduce the size of the library, build 139 market rate condos on top of the library and build 114 units of affordable housing in another part of Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Borough President is holding a hearing as part of the Uniform Land Use Review Process on Tuesday, August 18th at 6pm at Brooklyn Borough Hall, 209 Jorolemon Street in downtown Brooklyn. The Hudson Companies has not made a commitment to create good jobs for all of the construction, operations, maintenance and security workers on this project.
