Carroll Gardens Development Petition Hits 1,500 Signatures

That Carroll Gardens petition calling for a moratorium on buildings taller than 50 feet while rezoning is considered has gotten 1,500 signatures. The first petitions have been submitted to a long list of public officials, including the Mayor, Borough President and the MTA, which is involved in the project at 360 Smith Street that sparked the neighborhood mini-revolt. Signatures are still being collected both online and in the neighborhood, particularly at the Second Place and Smith Street plaza in front of the Carroll Street subway station. In the meantime, plans for the building at 360 Smith Street have been approved, but permits for the new building itself have not yet been issued. You can check the website of the Carroll Gardens Coalition to Respectfully Develop (CORD) here.
