NY Methodist Expansion Hearing Tonight in Park Slope

Proposed facility, from 6th Street looking east. NYM
A public hearing is planned for tonight -- Thursday, November 21-- at 6 p.m., where New York Methodist Hospital will make a presentation about its application for land use variances for a controversial new ambulatory care facility (Center for Community Health) in Park Slope.

The CB6 meeting will be held in the auditorium of the John Jay Educational Campus, 237 Seventh Avenue in Brooklyn.

Opponants say the new facility is too big for the historic Brownstone neighborhood, will require the demolition of 16 buildings, and will bring too much traffic.

The hospital says it has to build the facility because of market changes, reimbursement cutbacks and the new focus on primary care.

More here and here.

There's a petition here.
