Brooklyn Heights Library ULURP Hearing at Borough Hall Tonight (Tuesday)

Rendering: Marvel Architects
Tonight (Tuesday, Aug. 18) at 6 p.m., Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams will host a Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) public hearing on proposed plans for the Brooklyn Heights Library.

In the plan, Hudson Companies Inc. would build a 30-plus-story residential tower, replace the current library with a smaller one, and construct 114 affordable-housing units in Clinton Hill.

BP Adams will hear testimony from community stakeholders, including the Brooklyn Public Library and local residents, regarding their views on the pending application.

Get there at 5:30 p.m. if you want to sign up to comment.

On July 17, at a packed and frequently interrupted meeting Wednesday night, Brooklyn's Community Board 2 approved, with provisions, the much-disputed plan.

The added provisions would create a reserve fund of at least $2 million for future capital repairs; require the same "usable" floor space as the existing branch (there is some confusion over what is exactly usable, however); and create a Community Benefits Agreement and a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
