The housing advocacy group Churches United delivered more than 3,000 signatures in support of giving top priority to affordable units, said Matt Sollet, the group's outreach coordinator.
"These signatures, which were collected in only three days, are a testament to the dire need for affordable housing in North Brooklyn," he said.
CPC Resources, the developer, currently plans to build 2,200 apartments on the site - with a third earmarked for families earning as little as $25,000, said President Mike Lappin.
Factory fight turning bitter
Martina Salisbury of the Waterfront Preservation Alliance said her group also supports affordable housing on the site.
But she said the commission should consider also landmarking other buildings that are as old as the central processing plant - including the Adant House and the Power House - as well as some newer buildings.
"It is important to recognize that Domino is not a relic of Brooklyn's ancient past but a real and vibrant part of its recent past," she said.
The group collected more than 4,300 signatures supporting further preservation efforts, she said, including 1,300 delivered last week to the commission.
What's the deal with all these church groups sticking their nose into land use issues?
