NYC Dept. of Ed: Downtown Brooklyn needs an elementary school
There is no zoned elementary school in Downtown Brooklyn. The 2004 rezoning of the neighborhood lead to the building of thousands of new residential units and thousands more are to come. In 5 years time, there will likely be upwards of 25,000 more people living here than 10 years ago. The city did not plan for the massive influx of residents and they need to do something about it now before the situation is unfixable - we need a new elementary school in Downtown Brooklyn.

We believe that the Department of Education needs to start planning for a new school in Downtown Brooklyn immediately. Tens of thousands of people are moving to this fast-growing neighborhood and there is no school. Building a neighborhood school is an important component of building any new community and a new school will insure that overcrowding from the population boom won't adversely affect the schools in the surrounding neighborhoods.
