From the Times Ledger:
City Councilman Tony Avella (D−Bayside) led a protest outside a North Flushing home Tuesday where he said a developer is making a “bizarre” attempt to “beat the clock” on a forthcoming rezoning.
Avella and more than 30 North Flushing residents rallied outside of a Tudor home at 166−43 26th Ave., where a tenant said the owner, Paul Rufino, recently began excavating with little notice. Avella said Rufino had been negotiating with his office and area residents over plans to construct an eight−family home on the property.
Now, with the North Flushing rezoning plan expected to go into effect April 14, Avella and residents of the area said he is trying to complete enough construction on the property to get his plans grandfathered into the new rezoning.
Hey does that say "notice to revoke" on 4/1/09? Way to go, Tony!
