Representative Adriano Espaillat Statement on the Inwood Rezoning Appeals Decision
Today, Representative Adriano Espaillat issued the following statement in response to the court decision to allow the rezoning of the Inwood neighborhood within New York’s 13th congressional district to proceed.
“Affordable housing and protecting the availability of affordable housing for residents is a cornerstone of our community,” said Rep. Adriano Espaillat (NY-13). “I am deeply disappointed and concerned by yesterday's ruling to allow for the rezoning of Inwood following our years long efforts to ensure affordable housing for residents. The affects of this week’s decision will be felt throughout our city and will particularly hit communities of color the hardest. It is my hope that the appeal of this decision be allowed to continue to the highest court in the state.”
