The Cobble Hill Association was formed as a non-profit organization over 50 years ago in order to protect and promote the interests of the community. Today our mission is more important than ever as we face the construction of the largest new residential complex in the history of our neighborhood on the site of the former Long Island College Hospital (LICH).
In the coming months, we will be engaged in the public rezoning process of the LICH site known as ULURP (Uniform Land Use Review Process). Well-informed, motivated, and active community members will be our best chance to influence the outcome of this massive development at our doorstep.
In addition to aggressively promoting the community’s interest during the ULURP, the CHA will continue performing its vital duties in the neighborhood. The CHA maintains Cobble Hill Park, organizes events such as the Halloween Parade and the summer concert series, and serves as the main liaison between the community and our local elected officials.
Please join or renew your membership today so you will be eligible to vote on May 11 and make your voice heard.
