CB 2 questions mayor's vision of city
Board members also criticized the city for allowing development to outpace the infrastructure in Queens.
Nazli Parvizi, commissioner of the mayor's Community Affairs Unit, said the mayor's plan is trying to keep paces with the city's projected growth.
"It's a market-driven economy," she said. "Most of the property is privately -owned. We can't tell people not to build apartment houses and high rises. We can only say, 'What can we do for the schools? What can we do for the firehouses?'"
Actually you can tell people not to build apartment houses and high rises. It's called ZONING. And as for what can be done for schools and firehouses, how about starting by reopening the ones you closed!
