DEIS: Parkland concerns; ULURP approval


Draft EIS states:

The disposition and acquisitions, parkland mapping, approval of a concession, parking garage special permit actions, and realignment of boundaries of East 161st Street, Macomb’s Dam Bridge Approach, and Jerome Avenue in the vicinity of the proposed stadium site are subject to the City’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), and all of the actions require environmental review. NYCDPR is the lead agency for the environmental review.


The above ULURP actions should not be approved. Doing so will have a devastating impact on the community by taking valuable parkland away and replacing it with inferior facilities which must be constructed at great taxpayer expense.
