Brooklyn Community Meeting Summary & Recording: March 16, 2021

On Tuesday, March 16, 2021, via Zoom, NYCHA Federal Monitor Bart M. Schwartz and the monitoring team’s Resident Engagement Team Leader, Asha Muldro, hosted a community meeting for Brooklyn residents, tenant association presidents, elected officials, and community leaders. A recording of the meeting is available here.

Mr. Schwartz opened the meeting informing attendees that the monitorship is entering its third year. He recognized that although a lot of work has been done so far, not a lot of that work is visible to the residents. Moving forward, he wants to focus attention on making changes that the residents can see.

During the public session of the meeting, residents expressed their concerns, provided recommendations, and asked questions mainly related to the issues being addressed in the HUD agreement. In addition, NYCHA residents outside of the Brooklyn community participated during the public session.

The next Community Advisory Committee meeting will be held virtually on Tuesday, April 13, 2021, at 6:00 PM. It will be streamed live on the NYCHA Monitor’s YouTube channel. The next Community Meeting for Manhattan residents is scheduled for Tuesday, May 11, 2021.
