Brighton Beach fiasco

The Brooklyn Paper

To The Editor:

Re: Rezoning to Preserve and Save Brighton Beach):

Wake up residents of Brighton Beach, you are being used and abused by those we pay to correct problems, but who appear to be the problem. Brighton Beach is quickly losing its personality along with those whose integrity once stood by and helped to preserve it.

This fiasco is, purposely, again being delayed. so additional housing can be in place wherever desired by the city, the developers, the builders and now the community board executive committee, and other officers, who just keep on allowing and delaying the process by raping the foundation of Brighton Beach and giving rise to its profiteers.

Disgusting high rises next to private homes would be un-heard of in any other neighborhood in Brooklyn, or anywhere else. The city planning people should be investigated and, or, fired,

An investigation of kickbacks and payoffs should be implemented immediately, along with that of those, who keep using the homeless as scapegoats for the bungalow fires. However, that also would be another excuse to delay what should have been done yesterday. Community Board 13 says it will probably hold emergency meetings during the summer. Don’t hold your breath on this one. Everyone will blame everyone else for nothing getting done, because obviously their are people that gain and want nothing done.

Stalling the process is the name of the game, so they can keep on getting approvals and issuing permits, tearing down and building up, and they obviously have the power and the know how to do so.

I am requesting every person living in Brighton Beach to speak up, yell and shout: Stop this, now! Any buildings in process and any pending approvals must be put on hold. None should be allowed to be reviewed, considered or issued.

This is a community issue and any building within the community should be only approved by the community with the aid of, and not due to, the “city planners.”

Buildings that are already up and sitting like skeletons, should be brought down at the expense of those that put them up.

Name Withheld

Upon Request

Brighton Beach
