The public approval process for Columbia's proposed Manhattanville expansion is set to officially launch on Monday. According to Jennifer Torres, Department of City Planning spokeswoman, the long-awaited Environmental Impact Statement for the project will likely be certified as complete at the City Planning Commission's Monday meeting. At this time, the CPC will also begin reviewing Community Board 9's 197-a plan, an alternate land use plan proposed by the board which counters many aspects of Columbia's plan.
