Gallahan: Local Officials Outraged by High-Rise Plan

A statement from Assemblyman Jeff Gallahan (R,C-Manchester)

“Upstate and downstate residents of New York alike are outraged by Gov. Hochul’s high-rise plan. It is an unrealistic plan that will impose major changes on local zoning in suburban communities. To be perfectly clear, critics of this housing plan are not against affordable housing—we are against the attack on municipalities the current housing plan will exact on hardworking New Yorkers. As local officials in my district have stated, this is a statewide issue that threatens to put local roads and infrastructure in jeopardy. Decision-making regarding the futures of local communities should be left in the hands of local officials and community members rather than out-of-touch Albany Majority lawmakers looking to dismantle home rule.”
