ANHD held its Annual Member Meeting on Tursday,
December 1 at New York Law School. Over 100 representatives
from our member groups gathered to discuss a draft “Afordable
Neighborhoods” platform that is intended to inform the upcoming
mayoral election. After several lively breakout discussions, group
leaders reported back to the entire group and a platform emerged
that presents an alternative vision for New York City that responds
to the needs of working class families and preserves the dynamism
of all our neighborhoods.
At the cocktail reception held after, ANHD toasted four long-
time leaders of our Board of Directors including Walter Blenman
of Beulah HDFC, Michelle de la Uz of the Fifth Avenue
Committee, Barbara Lowry of Northern Manhattan Improvement
Corporation, and John Reilly of Fordham Bedford Housing
Corporation. We also enthusiastically welcomed four new Board
Members including Ismene Speliotis of the Mutual Housing
Association of NY, Harry DeRienzo of Banana Kelly, Aleciah
Anthony of NorthWest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition,
and Donald Notice of West Harlem Group Assistance.
Every two years board members for ANHD are elected by voting

ANHD Executive
Director Benjamin
Dulchin explains
ANHD’s new
proactive
approach.
O
ur annual members meeting Tursday,
December 1, did something new. We
gave membership a draft platform and an
opportunity to discuss the work awaiting us in 2013
and beyond. Members came prepared and went all
in, sharing their expertise and pitching various ideas
and solutions to the full range of issues afecting the
city’s afordable housing and community development
needs. While the needs are real and signifcant, a spirit
of optimism flled the room as members recognized
our ability to craft and implement meaningful
solutions.
“We haven’t had an opportunity to take a fresh look at
afordable housing policy in a long time,” said ANHD
Executive Director Benjamin Dulchin, speaking of
NYC’s upcoming Mayoral elections. “Te last time
was in 2001. Te next Mayoral elections are in 2013.
We have to start now so we can begin to identify our
priorities and educate all candidates about the various
needs of our neighborhoods.”
After Dulchin set the tone, members broke out into
six groups to better articulate our planks related to
new construction, preservation, homeownership
opportunities and foreclosure prevention, tenants
rights and code enforcement, bank accountability, and
public housing. It soon became clear that the allotted
30 minutes would be insufcient as participants began
to tackle complex problems in a deeply collaborative
way. Although an open bar and hors d’oeuvres awaited,
each breakout group kept asking for more time.

As individual groups reported back to
the full membership, the richness of the
discussion was evident in full fip charts and
a furry of recommendations. During each
de-drief, members from other discussion
groups shot up their hands to ask a question,
add their perspective or congratulate the
presenter on a job well done.
As the last of the groups presented,
a platform emerged that presents an
alternative vision for New York City that
responds to the needs of working class
families and preserves the dynamism of all
our neighborhoods.
Te meeting was not all work, however.
Even though policy discussions spilled over
into the cocktail reception, ANHD took
the time to recognize the contributions
of long-time Board Members who will be
term limited at the end of this year. Tese
include Walter Blenman of Beulah HDFC,
Michelle de la Uz of the Fifth Avenue

Public Beneft Expanded at Hunters Point
When the frst stage of the New Hunters Point South development at the southwestern tip
of Queens was announced last year, it required a minimum of 60% afordable units – already
a considerable amount for a development that, when completed, will be the largest afordable
housing development since Co-op City.
However, when all is said and done, it turns out that the frst phase of this development – over
900 units – is going even further toward maximizing afordability. 100% of the units are going
to be permanently afordable housing, the kind of workforce housing New York City needs if it’s
going to continue to complete on a global stage.
