The Stuyvesant Town–Peter Cooper Village Tenants Association will hold a public meeting to decode for residents the terms of the settlement arrived at by the TA and CWCapital regarding recent Major Capital Improvement (MCI) rent increases. The meeting will take place on Saturday, May 10 at 1 p.m. at Intermediate School 104, East 20th Street between First and Second Avenues. Space is limited, so seating will be first come, first served.
The meeting will be divided into three parts:
Part 1. City Council Member Dan Garodnick will sum up the latest news about what we can expect from the new city administration. Tenants Association attorney Tim Collins will explain the settlement and the money it has saved virtually every tenant. State Senator Brad Hoylman and Assembly Member Brian Kavanagh will discuss the outlook for changing tenant-unfriendly laws, how these laws can be changed and how tenant action can help, especially with rent law renewal coming up next year.
Part 2. A question-and-answer period will be devoted to MCIs in general and the settlement in particular.
Part 3. Residents will be invited to move to tables set up by category for guidance on questions or problems regarding their own leases. They are urged to bring copies of their leases so they can get the most informed responses.
