The next meeting of the Manhattan Beach Community Group will be November 19, 8:00pm at Public School 195, 131 Irwin Street. The meeting will focus on the topic of home values with regard to Superstorm Sandy. Among the issues to be addressed are: Will new building laws affect your property values? What will Manhattan Beach look like five years from now?

Guest speakers will include 195 Principal Bernadette Toomey, who will discuss school overcrowding, what is new and exciting at PS 195, whether PS 195 has dedicated staff for art, music, and physical education, and if the community could help the school in any way, as well as Winston von Engel, director of the Brooklyn Office of the NYC Planning Department. He will discuss what is currently mandated for reconstruction/construction in Manhattan Beach, why some homes are going to be built higher than zoning allowed before the storm, whether there can there be legal basement apartments, how the Special Permit law will change what Manhattan Beach will look like, and if there should be a rule keeping the footprint of a building within certain boundaries.

All are welcome to attend. If you have questions, it is requested by MBCG that you send them in via email to manhattanbeachbrooklyn.org@gmail.com prior to the meeting.

Additionally: PS 195 is holding a holiday food drive to help less fortunate families. Canned goods are being collected at the meeting.
