PROTECT SYRACUSE COMMUNITIES FROM DISPLACEMENT
Syracuse has some of the highest rates of segregation and concentrated poverty in the nation. Yet the city’s zoning plan, known as ReZone, fails to provide any protections against displacement for residents and doubles down on its support for major developers.
After three years of failing to engage with the public, and despite the concerns raised during the one public meeting held by the legislature ReZone was passed and signed into law. If the NYS Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) does not step in, residents living adjacent to the soon to be the newly developed community grid will be at grave risk of being displaced by future development.
TELL THE DOT: Protect Black Syracuse residents against displacement.
