Inwood community members have taken over Council Members Ydanis Rodriguez office RIGHT NOW!
Earlier today, the Land Use Committee voted to rubber stamp the predatory Inwood NYC rezoning, which would displace countless uptown residents and small businesses and destroy the fabric of the neighborhood. The rezoning plan at it’s essence is bad for Inwood and still is! While the «commercial U» was removed from the plan, promises of affordability remain vague and there is no good contractor language for construction jobs or improvements to infrastructure.
The full city council vote is on Aug 8th. We need Council Member Rodriguez to listen to the community that has shown up in mass to hearings and rallies: he must Vote No!
Join us right now at Council Members Ydanis Rodriguez office at 618 W. 177th St (at Wadworth Ave, 1 train to 181 st or A train to 175 St) in support and solidarity with the community members who are refusing to leave until the Council Member pledges to Vote NO on the rezoning!
The rezoning plan is a displacement plan! We need truly affordably housing that will not drive speculation.
This is the last chance before the vote for the council member to side with the community.
