UPDATES

WE ARE WINNING, BUT WE NEED EVERYONE TO CROSS THE FINISH LINE!

I. Legal Updates – The ongoing litigation to stop Fresh Direct’s move to the Harlem River Yards continues! Newly disclosed information provides us with the opportunity to request renewal of our claim that the State DOT violated the New York Constitution by allowing land at the Harlem River Yard to be leased to Fresh Direct. We’ll keep you posted!

II. Mott Haven-Port Morris Waterfront Plan – Our community’s plan for the waterfront – which does not include FreshDirect’s diesel truck warehouse – has received overwhelming support from City and State agencies, Speaker Mark-Viverito and more than 200 residents and organizations. If you have not already done so, please submit your comments today in support of the plan – LINK HERE.

 

III. Continued Pressure on the de Blasio Administration – Mayor de Blasio has the power to stop this deal! More than 400 phone calls and emails have been made to his office asking him to stop this deal. If you have not done so already, contact his team today – LINK HERE.


IV. Harder for Mayor de Blasio to Give $140M to One Company in a Market Flooded with Alternatives? – This proposed subsidy has long been fought by New York grocers who see significant unfair advantage being given to one company. Now the market is being flooded with additional alternative delivery providers.
