 Brooklyn Councilmenber Laurie Cumbo (D35) sent us information about a public hearing to be held THIS MORNING regarding a proposed $43 million residence for homeless families at 267 Rogers Ave. in Crown Heights.

While the notice of this hearing was published in the City Record, she thinks it should get more publicity.
