Now Is The Time To Rezone

Now Is The Time To Rezone

Dear Editor;

Your opinion is wrong again, Howie.

For continuity of our Rockaway Park neighborhood, and relief of overcrowding at PS225, due to new construction, PS114 should be rezoned to 116th Street.

The families in Rockaway Park are united in their church/synagogue affiliations, CYO, Little League, and other sports programs for the children, but separated by a school zone line that runs right down the middle of a local one way street.

We are homeowners and tenants in a small community that has much more in common with Belle Harbor than Surfside and Dayton Towers. To continue to exclude us from P.S. 114 divides this community and benefits no one.

To suggest down zoning is for political and financial reasons is just plain wrong.  Rezoning is being done on the whole peninsula now. This is the time to do it.
