SAVE THE VILLAGE | LGBT Youth Say NO to Private Development sign now

Dear Hudson River Park Trust Board of Directors,









As a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer [LGBTQ] Youth or ally, I am strongly opposed to the current development process for Pier 40 that plans to allow private developers to drastically change the surrounding neighborhood of the West Village.









I support the Pier 40 Working Group recommendation to reject both private development proposals for Pier 40 because neither proposal holds the communitys needs as its priority. Instead, I support a process where the HRPT will use its own or public funds to facilitate the structural repairs for Pier 40. I support a public process for the addition of more community space and activities on Pier 40.









In particular, I believe that LGBTQ youth who use Pier 45 are an important part of the West Village community. The Pier 40 redevelopment should include a minimum requirement of a significant amount of space to house an LGBT youth center with extended hours and various activities and services for one of NYCs most marginalized youth populations. The redevelopment of Pier 40 should not rely on the displacement of anyone who call the West Village home.









I strongly urge the Hudson River Park Trust (HRPT) to reject both private development proposals for Pier 40 and to manage the development itself with the publics input, including addressing the needs of LGBT youth who are a part of the surrounding community.









Use your vote to Say NO! to Private Development and YES! to a community centered process!
