Peter Young Facility

CB8 full board meeting
Thursday Feb. 12 7:00 pm at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum
145 Brooklyn Ave. near St. Marks

On Monday evening CB 8’s housing committee voted 9 to 1 to recommend the approval by the full board of the change of use of the Peter Young facility on Pacific St. (across from the Bed/Atlantic Armory.)

The Peter Young facility is the homeless men’s shelter that DHS is closing in conjunction with their plan to add an intake center to the assessment center at the Bed/Atlantic armory. The proposal the housing committee voted for is to now make the Peter Young facility a 28 day residential drug rehab.

CB8 has a moratorium on new residential facilities. However, they approved this when the Peter Young group said that 90% of the people they will serve will be residents of this community. The full board will be voting on this on 2/12/09
