Senator Bill Perkins, D-West Harlem, fielded questions from residents within the footprint of Columbia’s proposed expansion zone at the Manhattanville Community Center on Monday night.
At a recent meeting, the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development laid out two principles to safeguard the rights of tenants, according to Donald Notice, executive director of West Harlem Group Assistance. Notice said HPD and West Harlem Group Assistance pledged to only support a move if 100 percent of tenants agreed to it. The two organizations also agreed to move residents back into buildings currently under construction rather than handing the vacated buildings over to the University.
