City Limits’ “Rezone or Leave Alone” Panel
May 10, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us May 10th at 6:30pm for a lively exchange on growth, development, and city policy.
Tom Angotti, Vicki Been and Moses Gates for a debate on the complexities of de Blasio’s push for density, moderated by City Limits Executive Editor & Publisher Jarrett Murphy. Tom Angotti, a professor at Hunter College and the author of Zoned Out! Race, Displacement, and City Planning in New York City has become a leading critic of De Blasio’s neighborhood rezoning strategy and the administration’s push for housing growth. Vicki Been served as de Blasio’s commissioner of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) before stepping down this February to return to teaching at NYU and is currently faculty director at NYU Furman Center. Moses Gates, formerly at the Association for Housing and Neighborhood Development and now at the Regional Planning Association, also has his critiques of the administration’s housing policy, but sees the value of increased density, too.
There is a $10 donation at the door. Free to City Limits members.
