De Blasio Holding Town Hall Meeting in Jackson Heights Wednesday, Attendees Must RSVP

March 26, 2018 By Tara Law

Mayor Bill de Blasio is holding a town hall meeting in Jackson Heights Wednesday night and will be taking questions from the public.

The mayor, who will be joined by Councilmember Daniel Dromm and other elected officials, is hosting the meeting that is titled “Working for Council District 25” at I.S. 145 Joseph Pulitzer 33-34 80th St. at 6:30 p.m.

Representatives from several city agencies, including the Department of Transportation, will be at the meeting.

There are no set issues being discussed during the town hall — instead, community members are permitted to ask questions about issues of their choice.

The Department of Transportation’s controversial Clear Curbs initiative, which prohibits deliveries and standing on Roosevelt Avenue during rush hour, is expected to be discussed at the town hall.

The event is being co-sponsored by Community Board 3, which represents East Elmhurst, Jackson Heights and North Corona.

Doors open at the event at 5:30 p.m. and close at 7 p.m.

People looking to attend must RSVP and are required to e-mail [email protected], or call 212-788-4282.

Space is limited, and an RSVP is required by 5 p.m. today. For further information, click here.

I hope the mayor have some answers for that East Elmhurst community, why all the hotels are turning into homeless shelter and making our neighborhood more risky for everyone of us. I never had to watch my back after parking my car at night while walking home now I am literally afraid to walk home.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
