Coney Island Meetings, Finally, Next Week

Those that have been waiting for a public information session about the Coney Island plan since the original meeting was shut down because of people bused in by State Sen. Carl Kruger (paid for with his campaign funds) will get their chance next week. The Coney Island Development Corp. will be having sessions for the public:
Monday, January 7, 2008 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Tuesday, January 8, 2008 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Tuesday, January 8, 2008 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
The Monday and Tuesday evening sessions will take place at Lincoln High School Auditorium., which is located at 2800 Ocean Parkway. The Tuesday afternoon meeting will happen at the Coney Island Hospital Auditorium, which was the location of the ill-fated meeting that was canceled. All three sessions will have the same format, presentations and information. There will be an opportunity for comments and questions from the public. Individuals wishing to speak will be asked to sign-up at a registration table at the entrance to the auditorium." The sessions are formally called Public Information Sessions on the Coney Island Zoning Framework.

Will they be raucous? Will more busloads of paid protestors show up? Will the public finally get to hear the details of the plan without any disruptions? Stay tuned.
