June 11: Public hearing on borough-based jails plan

I’m holding a public hearing on the Manhattan component of the Mayor’s borough-based jails plan as part of my effort to ensure the broader community has robust input and to inform the formal ULURP opinion I’ll issue early next month.

The plan is part of the city’s effort to close Rikers Island and replace it with smaller jails in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. The Manhattan proposal, now undergoing the official Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), involves a new 450 ft. tower at 124-125 White St. in Lower Manhattan (the current Manhattan Detention Complex).

You can testify at the hearing for two minutes and/or submit longer written testimony to info@manhattanbp.nyc.gov with the phrase “Borough-Based Jails Testimony” in the subject line.
