Statement From Mayor de Blasio On City Council Committe Vote To Approve Inwood Neighborhood REZONING

August 2, 2018

“Today’s committee vote is the first step to ensure Inwood becomes a fairer and stronger neighborhood. It means security for families who deserve to stay in the neighborhood they love, and new education, employment and community investments that will open opportunities for lifelong residents and new immigrants alike. We’re building and protecting affordable homes at a record pace. Today’s vote means thousands more families in Inwood will have the security of affordable housing, and rent they can afford. We’re adding new resources for tenants across Inwood to fight harassment and evictions. This new plan will bring significant new investments in community enrichment, including two waterfront parks, a new library, and a new Pre-K facility, along with key infrastructure projects. Council member Rodriguez has shown true leadership in supporting this proposal and members of the Inwood community will benefit for generations to come. I also thank Speaker Johnson and Land Use Committee Chair Salamanca for joining us in our fight for affordable housing and strong neighborhoods.”
