Here is a very quick roundup of proposals from the March Community Board 5 meeting. We only included a few of the more interesting ones that were also located in the Madison Square Park and Flatiron vicinity. You can read all of the meeting notes at

  • (Approved) Triscuit Home Farming Day was approved for April 12th, featuring an interactive planting station designed to enlist new home farmers, the opportunity to send a plantable postcard to friends or family, plus the Home Farm Cafe where you can try two farm fresh Triscuit recipes.
    Triscuit will also make a $45,000 contribution to the Madison Square Park Conservancy.
  • (Denied) The Manhattan Republican Club, street festival on Park Avenue South, between 17thand 23rd  Streets, on Saturday, October 22 was denied.
  • (Approved) Proposed moratorium on new liquor licenses on 20th, 21st, and 22nd Streets between Fifth and Sixth Avenues in place to address problems of noise, congestion, litter, traffic problems, and belligerent crowds, vandalism and violence was approved to be expanded to 19th street between 5th and 6th Avenue and 20th and 21st Streets between Broadway and Park Avenue South. This primarily affects establishments of greater than 4,000 square feet that do not have a kitchen. It is our understanding that this moratorium is just guidance for the State Liquor Authority.
  • (Denied) Trattoria Zero Otto Nove did not get the approval of CB5 for the liquor license at their upcoming restaurant at 15 West 21st Street unless they adhere to certain guidelines set by the board (not use external party promoters, not seek a cabaret license, maintain adequate security, etc). Again, it is our understanding that the Community Board only offers guidance to the New York State Liquor Authority, who may or may not take the guidance into consideration.

No word yet on the Big Apple BBQ…
