Still trying to stop hot sheets motel
A Queens neighborhood is up in arms after finding out that an hourly motel will be constructed right across the street from the local high school.
The 'Hot Sheet' "is a hotel that charges hourly" said community activist Michael Duncan. "it's not good for children."
So far the community is winning, a stop work ordered has been issued because the developer failed to complete the foundation in the permit's time frame.
But these parents and concerned residents aren't resting, meeting at Saint Peter Lutheran church Thursday in anticipation that the developer will go before the board of standards and appeals to try and get an extension.
"We have elected officials that see this in our backyard." said Jacques Leandre who was angry none attended the Thursday evening meeting.
