12/4 Minutes

7:42pm Roll-taking

7:43pm Niko starts the last meeting of this semester

7:45pm Opinions for Town Hall Visit from last week

- Free food, good pictures (Brody)

- No one felt to be informed enough after the meeting (Ashley)

- Good start to an annual town hall, a lot of students wanted to see the GSSC representatives to introduce themselves (Nicolle)

- Good feedback, people were confused about the meeting because it was their first visit to a town hall meeting (Cheryl)

- It was more information out than in (Paige)

- For the future, GSSC reps should sit at one side of the table and students on the other side to develop a better relationship between them (Evan/visitor)

-  Does it always take for students to go to the extremes for the administration to react; did not feel like there was total openness from the administration (William/visitor)

- I sent an email and asked for a change to the administration, but they won't respond to me personally, but they meet outside (Brody)

7:49pm Raul enters

 - The real problem was that we were not strict enough about the moderation; in the first panel the rep for Building Commission took the whole time; Dean Awn gives the same speech he gives at orientation (Dave)

- After 20-min response, the person who asked the original question asked the follow-up question (Todd)

- We had a min. 110 people showing up (Niko) 

- How do you feel about more gssc-oriented

7:52pm Nancy's Article in the Spectator

-  Where do you see GS now and in the future; I talked about orientation and the psychological emphasis on being "different" and "separate" from all other three undergrad. schools; my article was placed at the opinion section (Nancy)

 7:55pm Evan talks about CCSC meeting as liaision

Town Hall Minutes

Niko,

Introduced Rhodes and Marshall scholars (both from CC).
Introduced Chikodi Chima - donate to the Senior fund

Two panels, 20 minutes for panel discussion and then 10 minutes.
Panel moderator Evan Medeo
Write questions for moderator

Panel One: Future of General Studies

Peter Awn - Dean of General Studies
Curtis Rodgers - Dean of Admissions
Joe Ienuso - Manhattanville

Joe: Been in university for 19 years. Began as admissions director for ESC. Then moved to financial aid for CC. Ready to talk about the Manhattanville expansion.

My team and I on behalf of the University are working on a 7 month process of land use review - something the city of New York asks of every rezone project in New York. Community recommended 10 changes. Stringer moved the plan through the planning commission. City Planning commission voted 10 for, 1 against, 1 abstain.

Next step - 50 days. There is possibly one more (city?) council meeting. Or the approval could be taken immediately.

So overall, it's a seven month process with a hearing at every level in the process (three).

Question: how long from approval until building?
Answer: if we receive approval, 6-9 months - abatement and demolition. Construction itself will take 25 - 30 years. Design of the first five buildings is being done as we speak.

Question: Research facilities to Dorms?
Answer: Three recommendations were made in fact. Dimensions of two buildings. Site converted to university housing for older, professional students, from academic research. Final change was to lower the height of the buildings by 50%.

Question: About the Community Board voting against Columbia plan, and the vocal community opinion. Where is opposition coming from and the need for changes? Particularly affordable housing and secondary displacement 3300+ people.
