Fifteen members of the Doug-Bay Civic Association met last Thursday evening at the Douglaston Manor Market to discuss their ongoing battle to prevent St. Sarkis Armenian Apostolic Church from buying city land next door for a parking lot.
Doug-Bay civic blasts St. Sarkis' new plan
The church's original plans to build a day-care center on the land at 234th Street in Douglaston were scrapped in response to community opposition to the project.
Members of the civic association and some 200 community members who signed a petition believe the land should be turned into a park.
