As efforts to close Rikers Island jail facility and replace it with smaller jails in the boroughs continue, local officials are asking the community to sound off.
In Manhattan, the proposal is undergoing the official Uniform Land Use Review Procedure, which involves a new 450-foot tower at 124-125 White St., the current Manhattan Detention Complex.
The hearing is part of an effort to ensure the broader community has an input and will help inform the formal ULURP opinion.
A hearing will be held at the Pace University Student Center.
Those who attend the hearing can testify for about two minutes.
