Community board calendar: Soho homeless shelter, Edie and Thea Way, the mental-health crisis…Pepe Rosso To Go

BY THE VILLAGE SUN | Following the recent emotional and heated meetings over a planned homeless drop-in and Safe Haven site at 231 Grand St. in Chinatown, Community Board 2 this month will be hearing an update on the status of yet another planned homeless facilty.

On Thurs., April 28, the board’s Human Services Committee will get an update from the city’s Department of Homeless Services and the operator, Westhab, about a proposed congregate shelter for 200 single adults slated for 349 Canal St., at Wooster Street. Expect a strong turnout by concerned Soho residents.

Earlier in the month, on Tues., April 5, the C.B. 2 S.L.A. Licensing Committee will hear a beer-and-wine application by the operators of Pepe Rosso To Go — a local Italian favorite which has had a few locations around the Downtown area — which is taking over the former Miss Lilly’s Jamaican restaurant space at the corner of Houston and Sullivan Streets.

On Thurs., April 7, the C.B. 2 Traffic and Transportation Committee will consider a request to co-name the northwest side of Fifth Avenue and Washington Square North as Edie Windsor and Thea Spyer Way. Windsor’s case in the U.S. Supreme Court led in 2015 to gay marriage being legalized at the federal level.

Meanwhile, also on Thurs., April 7, the Community Board 3 Health, Seniors and Human Services / Youth, Education and Human Rights Committee will follow up on a letter to Councilmember Erik Bottcher on his eight-point plan to address the city’s mental-health crisis. The committee will also discuss a possible joint C.B. 2 and C.B. 3 meeting/forum on mental illness needs in the Downtown community.

    Why is nobody from the Community Boards and most politicians saying anything about the announced closing of the 23st. Veterans Hospital? Support the troops, keep it open. Most city media do not seem to care either?

  2. Rayan Abee Rayan Abee April 7, 2022
