Petitioning New York City Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo and 1 other

Save The Brooklyn Botanic Garden!

Action Alert :  Come out on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 - 7 pm - Community Board 9 General Board Meeting Hearing, at MS 61 - 400 Empire Blvd, Brooklyn N.Y. 11225


In 1991 The Brooklyn Botanic Garden "BBG" got a rezoning along its perimeter to protect itself against tall buildings that would cast shadows and destroy the visual integrity of the Garden.

Now a major developer, Cornell Realty, wants to break the height limits of 6/7 stories (60/70 feet) and build buildings as high as 23 stories (230 ft) which is over a 300% increase.

This rezoning however must be approved by Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo.

Please sign our petition and let her know that we care about our sunlight, our air, our public spaces and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.  Tell her to say NO! to this development.  Let her know that this is an election year and we vow to only support candidates that support our causes and protect our public assets.

Help us preserve and protect this valuable public greenspace, where over 700,000 people a year visit!
