Community Board 7's Site Selection Committee
Tuesday, May 6th, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Sites need to be found to accommodate 2,000 additional students--and even more when Universal Pre-Kindergarten is implemented.

Community Board 7's Site Selection Committee would like to know about locations within CB7's boundaries that could accommodate new schools. The Department of Education and School Construction Authority will then conduct studies on the suggested sites.

Make your suggestions at the committee meeting on May 6th or send the property's address and a description of it to CB 7 via e-mail at communityboard7 @
