Candidates Isaac Abraham, Ken Baer, Doug Biviano, Ken Diamondstone, Stephen Levin, Jo Anne Simon, and Evan Thies answer the following question:
In 2004 and 2005, two major rezonings were approved in the 33rd District. In Downtown Brooklyn, the community was promised tens of thousands of square feet of new office and commercial space and just last week we recognized the 4th anniversary of the Greenpoint-Williamsburg rezoning, which ushered in an enormous amount of new development. Many of the benefits of the rezoning, such as the non-inclusionary affordable housing and the parks and open spaces are largely unrealized. How will you ensure that the promises of the Downtown Brooklyn Plan and Williamsburg-Greenpoint rezoning are kept?
