On Friday, August 28, the New York City Department of Education’s Office of District Planning (DOE – ODP) requested placement on the Agenda for the CEC’s public business meeting on Tuesday, September 1. The ODP intends to share with the CEC and the public at least one preliminary scenario for rezoning PS 8, which they have said will include a preliminary map and additional scenario details.
We have agreed to this request and are presently revising our agenda to reflect the DOE’s presentation. The expected presentation is NOT a formal zoning proposal (i.e., it does not begin a timeline that would require a CEC vote within 45 days); rather it is aimed at generating community and CEC input toward a formal zoning proposal that the DOE will submit at a later date.
Please note that, despite our requests for an opportunity to review any scenarios in advance so as to better engage our communities, the DOE has NOT provided the CEC any specific information about its preliminary scenario(s) and we are therefore unable to share any details at this time.
Tuesday’s meeting starts at 6:30 pm at the District Office at 355 Park Place at Underhill Ave in Prospect Heights.
We will share any additional information as it becomes available. Please see our revised agenda updated to allocate time for the DOE ODP to make its rezoning presentation.
