  10. 10. Call on the City: Stop the Luxury Towers, Pass Full CWG Plan! Coalition to Protect Chinatown and LES As a member of the LES-Chinatown community, I call on Mayor de Blasio and Council Speaker Corey Johnson to: 1. STOP the four illegal luxury mega-towers that the City approved to build in Two Bridges: these towers will destroy the affordability and character of the Lower East Side and Chinatown communities. They will raise rents, cause displacement of working people and small businesses, overburden our infrastructure, pollute our environment and harm our health. 2. PASS the FULL Chinatown Working Group Rezoning Plan (CWG), a community-led plan to protect residents, workers and small businesses in Chinatown and LES from displacement. The CWG Plan prevents out-of-scale development through height limits, and requires new housing to be truly affordable to our community of working people. By passing the CWG Plan, we will protect our whole community from displacement for generations to come. YOUR SIGNATURE
  11. 11. Our Demands: Stop the Towers + Pass the full CWG plan
