New York, NY - Private development planned on the Holmes Towers public housing site on the Upper East Side will restart its community engagement process as the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) has withdrawn its Section 18 application from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Since August 11, 2015, when Mayor de Blasio’s NextGen NYCHA infill program was announced as part of the 2015 NYCHA Annual Plan, Congress Member Carolyn Maloney, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and Council Member Ben Kallos, have joined tenants in expressing concerns that the program as proposed did not take sufficient input from tenants and community members and would not bring enough resources to NYCHA. NYCHA will now start a new community engagement process complete with new Section 18 application centered around residents, neighbors, Community Board 8, and local elected officials.
