A Coup is Afoot at the Cobble Hill Asociation

The Brooklyn Eagle reports that 24 Cobble Hill Association members have called a special meeting to boot long-time leader Roy Sloane from the position of acting president, and to elect new officers to fill other board vacancies.

This comes in the middle of CHA-organized community talks with Fortis Property Group, the developer that won the rigged bid to buy Long Island College Hospital (LICH) in Brooklyn and turn it into out-of-scale condos.

Is the coup part of the death throes of what was once a dynamic community organization -- or a positive infusion of fresh blood in the fight to fight the mega-development of Cobble Hill?

Two months later I think we know the outcome of this foolish move on the part of 12 couples: They really screwed their community. Not engaging with the developer to make a bad situation tolerable has resulted in the developer saying sayonara to this group of idiots and doing whatever he pleases. Sloane was a good man . He was the best chance this community had of saving itself.
