01 212198023C Request: Demolish and Reconstruct a New 66th Precinct Station House on the This project is included in the ten-year
Footprints of Same. Acquire the Air Rights Over the Long Island Railroad to House plan.
Trailers Which Can Then Be Used, After Construction, as a Parking Lot for the New
66th Precinct.

Explanation: Although some construction has occurred at the Precinct, these modest
renovations are only band-aid in nature. Much more is needed to improve working
conditions. Good working conditions are conducive to fostering good police work.
Additional space is needed to house police officers and civilians and can only be
accomplished by demolishing the present site and building a new state of the art
Precinct. Money saved by not having to acquire land will pay for a new building. There
is no available land, private or City owned, in this district. Air rights over the LIRR can
be used to house trailers during demolition and construction and then be used as a
parking lot for personnel. This request is 30 years old. These plans and the start of
ULURP applications must begin ASAP.

2011.
Explanation: With the Annex building already demolished for the intended use of this
now vacant lot for parking trucks, it is imperative that a sound barrier be built in back of
this lot which abuts the private homes on Dahl Court. We have been inundated with
complaints concerning noise and pollution from these trucks in the early morning hours
when trucks are revving up. Many of these homes were purchased when the Annex
was still on this lot and all trucks were housed there. Homes are expensive and owners
put a lot of money into them. They were not aware that the Annex would be demolished
and the lot would be opened for parking of Sanit. trucks. Without this sound barrier,
noise pollution will become a major problem and will greatly affect the quality of life for
these homeowners.

Explanation: During heavy rains, water backs-ups into the basement of homes causing
extensive damage. Sewer lines are too small as well as ancient and cannot
accommodate heavy rains, thus causing flooding into basements. Flooding occurs on
an ongoing basis along these strips causing financial strain to the homeowners. This
flooding has occurred over the last several years. Most complaints have been
registered with 311.

have moved into the area, this playground has become very popular. This Park needs
to be made into a Comfort Station Park/Maintenance area which is staffed with full time
personnel. This would greatly benefit the entire neighborhood and at the same time,
allow the site to be a fixed post playground.

Explanation: Numerous children and adults must cross East 5th Street to go to the
other side of the Park in order to use the restrooms. This is a highly trafficked street
and with a high volume of pedestrian traffic going back and forth to use the restrooms
on the other side, a safety problem has been created. A restroom, especially for the
children using this park, is an essential to this playground. This past year, more and
more children and adults have been using the Ballfield. The need for a restroom inside
the playground has become imperative and with the crossing back and forth of
pedestrians, this has become a major safety issue for all.

01 212200701E Request: Increase Community Board Budgets. The community boards' budget is
maintained as per the January plan.
Explanation: Some years ago, monies were taken out of the Community Board
budgets and were never fully replenished. Last year for the first time, the Commmunity
Boards' budgets were negatively impacted because the Boards had to partially fund
collective bargaining increases as well as the Mayor's Personnel Order for Managerial
Increases. With each new budget, the threat to cut the budget of the Community Boards
is always present.. Based on this, most Community Boards are operating on a deficit
unable to afford supplies and other amenities. The Boards' budgets must be increased,
not decreased.

funding.
Explanation: Community District 12 has over 300 Private Schools serving
approximately 185,000 children. The District also has 16 Public Schools which serve
approximately one third of the total enrollment of the Private Schools. Public School
attendance is dwindling in this District while Private School enrollment has increased.
Most of these Private Schools have year round lunch programs with perishable foods.
Private Schools only receive two pickups a week while the Publc Schools are picked up
daily. Private Schools are experiencing sanitary problems, because garbage must be
contained inside the building over weekends and for days at a time - causing rodent
problems and health problems. This is an issue of great concern which must be
addressed.
