At a special meeting tonight, the members of the Common Council voted 7 to 4 to support Phase One of the redevelopment of the former Kaz site in its pursuit of a Restore NY grant.
Those voting in support of the resolution were councilmembers Theo Anthony (Fourth Ward), Art Frick (First Ward), Margaret Morris (First Ward), Mohammed Rony (Second Ward), Dewan Sarowar (Second Ward), Malachi Walker (Fourth Ward), and Council president Tom DePietro. Those opposed were councilmembers Vicky Daskaloudi (Fifth Ward), Amber Harris (Third Ward), Dominic Merante (Fifth Ward), and Ryan Wallace (Third Ward).
Because the resolution to support the Kaz project passed, the resolution to support the Pocketbook Factory adaptive reuse was not voted on.
