Video: Paul Graziano’s Presentation on the City of Yes

The April 4th meeting of the Queens Village Republican Club featured Land Use and Zoning Expert, Paul Graziano who presented a comprehensive analysis of the “City of Yes,” the citywide zoning proposal by Mayor Adams. This insidious proposal could subject our residential communities to massive overdevelopment and commercial expansion. The “City of Yes” threatens to destroy single-family and two-family zoning and transform our peaceful residential communities into busy commercial zones, escalating noise, traffic, crime, and congestion. This proposal is not about affordable housing. It will destroy residential communities and put an end to private property ownership. We must say NO to the City of Yes!

Thank you to Michael Ferrara and James Doukas our videographers!

Local Control, Not Hochul Control

By Phil Orenstein

We recently learned that thanks to the “suburban uprising,” Gov. Hochul pulled the housing plan from the state budget for now. It shows that when we stand up against government tyranny and make our voices heard, we can move mountains. But the fight is not over yet, especially the huge Creedmoor land redevelopment, which is still on the table!

Once again, our unethical politicians throughout New York State are lying through their teeth. Three years ago, they pulled a fast one on the people by hiding the Democrat’s Bail Reform law, the major cause of the rise in crime, in the Fiscal Year 2019-2020 NYS budget. They are at it again, conspiring to hide the monstrous Hochul Housing Compact in the 2023-24 state budget, which is currently stalled in Albany budget talks.
