Wake Up Rockaway!

Dear Editor;

When will Rockaway's residents, elected officials and Community Board 14 ever wake up?

Now, as in the past, Rockaway is being saturated with another low and no income high rise apartment project. This time the buildings are being
erected between Seagirt boulevard and the ocean at Beach 24 street just west of Wavecrest Gardens.

The construction has just started. It is being built by realestate hustlers
with millions of dollars of grant money from the state. Where does this leave the people of Wavecrest and the other communities of Rockaway?

The communities that want to see major economic development and an improvement in the quality of
life for all the people are once again being denied by big money and its influence. We must organize immediately to stop this project.

STEPHEN A. COOPER
