TODAY July 16th Phone Zap

Per GVSHP, call City Councilmembers TODAY, July 16th to urge them to vote 'NO' on the NYU plan.  Phone numbers and a script are HERE and printed below.

Your own City Councilmember — search below for contact info or CLICK HERE if you don’t know who your Councilmember's name.

SAMPLE SCRIPT: “My name is _________ and I am calling because I am strongly opposed to the NYU expansion plan the City Council will be voting on. Who should I speak to about this?

(if any office says the Councilmember will vote ‘NO,’ thank them for his/her support, and call the next one)

I strongly urge the Councilmember to vote ‘NO’ on the NYU plan and send it back to the drawing board (if this is your Councilmember, say so here). I am opposed to any public park space being sold off to NYU. I am opposed to any upzoning of the neighborhood to allow additional development by NYU where it does not belong. I am opposed to breaking any urban renewal agreements that govern how the land NYU now owns can be used. NYU’s neighbors, its faculty, and its staff are all united in opposing this plan. NYU has not listened to any of us, has not demonstrated the need for locating these facilities here, and has not explored alternatives. The only right thing for the Council to do is vote the NYU plan down.”
