New: At the full board meeting of CB7, they voted to approve the resolution that opposed the current 79th Street Boat Basin plan in light of FEMA’s ruling of Adverse Effect to Historic Properties. To read the resolution click here.

The latest CB7 meeting on the 79th St Boat Basin was on Monday night, the 17th. The committee meeting is posted on youtube. The latest iteration is a two-story dock house on columns. Reasons for placement, design, height discussed in the meeting.

CB7 is asking all those who want to comment on the proposal to please respond by April 27th. We respect all the work and revision that has gone into this project, thus far, but believe it has a long way to go before it becomes appropriate for this site. We will be submitting a statement (or joint statement) to the community board and FEMA stating that opinion..
