Petition regarding Lighthouse Group Development!

Please sign the petition below regarding the Lighthouse Group Development in time for the Wednesday Community Board 6 General Meeting! Please pass along!
This just in from the Froggs:
"If you agree that building 700 rental units including two 12 story buildings along the canal is inappropriate at best and will be recklessly dangerous to our health and quality of life,  please sign on and help circulate this and gather signatures in time for next Wednesday's meeting of the full CB6.  Thanks."


With the "Protect Our Homes" petition, CORD was formed in May, 2007. This petition arose as an overwhelmingly negative response to the coming of the over-sized 360 Smith Street Development at the corner of Smith Street and Second Place (Aka Oliver House; aka 131 Second Place). This petition, which had well over three thousand signatures, led to a new zoning text amendment in summer of 2008.

We the undersigned Carroll Gardens homeowners and residents, are appalled by the "as of right" ruling which allows owners and developers to erect buildings in our neighborhood with no regard to the impact they will present to our quality of life and the value of our homes........
