Carroll Gardens Zoning Text Ammendment Hearing Tomorrow Morning

Why would anyone want to change this?
Tomorrow there is a very important meeting for Carroll Gardeners who live in the historic brownstone narrow street areas. The narrow "Place" blocks are in danger of becoming crowded with out of scale building developments. There is an ridiculous piece of text in the zoning code that says that the front gardens, ie: the "GARDENS" of Carroll "GARDENS" are really part of the street.

If you have the time and you care about the unique beauty and history of these buildings and do not want out of scale tall buildings to destroy the existing aesthetic and character of this historic neighborhood, do try and attend the meeting. If you can not attend you can submit a comment.
