Battery Park City (BPC), is a lower Manhattan community of approximately 16,000 residents, 42,000 workers and many more who use and love its public spaces and parks, is currently governed by a body of 7 governor appointed officials.

We are calling on our governor and state legislature to update the law and change BPC’s governance so that a majority - 4 out of 7- BPCA seats will be occupied by local residents whose primary residence is BPC. We are asking that the residents be consulted, have fair representation and a voice on decisions impacting our own community.

We want and deserve representatives who are personally invested in the community. It's the same reasons why New York passed a law granting this right to the residents of Roosevelt Island.  

Please stand with our BPC community and sign this petition that seeks fair representation on our local governing board.  

All peoples deserve to be governed by officials that truly represent them.
