United States
Description: 

On Thursday, October 29th The Crown Heights Revitalization Movement is sponsoring a panel discussion about how we might bring more affordable housing to North Crown Heights. As many of you may know, there are several luxury housing projects in danger of failing in our neighborhood. CHRM feels that we should get as many of these homes as possible, as well as other existing buildings that need extensive renovation, converted to affordable housing, with subsidies from the government as necessary and possible. Assemblyman Hakim Jeffries has introduced legislation (bill #9136) that would create subsidies to do just that. While the Assemblyman is unable to attend, he has offered to update CHRM on the contents of the legislation.
All of the invited panelists have extensive experience in providing affordable housing. Let's hear what they have to say about bringing more affordable housing to our neighborhood and how they might be able to use the Jeffries legislation to achieve that end.
Keynote speakers and panel members:

    Councilmember Letitia James, keynote speaker
    Assemblyman Karim Camara, keynote speaker
    Mark W. Griffith, moderator
    Adam Friedman, ED, Pratt Center for Community Development
    Deborah Howard, ED, Pratt Area Community Council
    Yahya Raji, ED, Brooklyn Neighborhood Improvement Assoc.
    Robert Riggs, Sr. VP, Community Preservation Corporation
    Ethel Tyus, Esq. Counsel to Crown Heights North Asssocation, Inc. and member, Community Board
