The Bayside Hills Civic Association will be hosting a meeting on the topic of "Board of Standards and Appeals and Outrageous Variance Problems."
New York City John Liu, who is also a mayoral candidate, will be in attendance.
"We will be asking the Comptroller how we can get better protection from outrageous projects that are granted with the permission of the Board of Standards and Appeals," said BCHA President Michael Feiner. "We definitely plan to review our experiences with that infamous "" saga at 50-20 216 Street and how we can be assured potential tragedies such as that will never again occur," he added.
Feiner's question to Liu is: How can an agency, with the title Board of Standards and Appeals with that premise inherent in its title, make a decision so repugnant to a community, but have such a difficult appeal process?
Community members are being asked to email in questions to Liu before the meeting. Send your questions to MFeiner555@aol.com.

The meeting will be held at 8p.m. on April 24th, at the .
