Councilwoman working with city agency to remove board at Dayton Beach Park in the Rockaways


Following years of turmoil, Councilwoman Joann Ariola has negotiated with the city’s Department of Housing and Development (HPD) to take the necessary steps to remove the co-op board of Dayton Beach Park, bringing an end to a saga that has left tenants and shareholders in limbo for over a decade.

The board at the sprawling 1156-unit city-subsidized Mitchell-Lama property at 8600 Shore Front Pkwy. in Rockaway Beach has been locked in a legal battle with the city since 2018, litigation that allowed the board to block any elections to replace it.
