A through look at the current situation by the Brooklyn Eagle, which has been an invaluable source of reporting on the LICH saga:
That wraps phase one for SUNY’s reissued Request for Proposals (RFP), painstakingly drawn up after a ferocious legal battle waged by community members, local officials and employees to keep LICH open as a full service hospital.
The six community organizations who were petitioners in the LICH litigation are sponsoring a public presentation of the proposals submitted by RFP respondents who have accepted their invitation. All are invited to the forum on Tuesday, March 25th, from 6 to 8 p.m. at St. Francis College, Founder’s Hall Auditorium, 180 Remsen Street, Brooklyn Heights.
The sponsoring organizations include the Boerum Hill Association, Brooklyn Heights Association, Carroll Gardens Neighborhood Association, Cobble Hill Association, Riverside Tenants Association, and Wyckoff Gardens Association.
Panels made up of representatives of SUNY and representatives chosen by the petitioners in the lawsuit will have until March 26 to evaluate the proposals.
Click through for the story - and note the public forum next Tuesday.
