Public Invited to Atlantic Yards Board of Directors Meeting

A Thursday meeting of the Empire State Development Corporation will potentially discuss the 25-year buildout plan

On Thursday the Empire State Development Corporation Board of Directors will convene in a meeting open to the public for observation and comment.

According to the Atlantic Yards Report blog, on December 10 a Forest City Ratner executive indicated that the meeting agenda would including plans to approve a document stating that the potential 25-year buildout of Atlantic Yards does not require a Supplemental Impact Statement (SEIS).

Further, the document will assert that completing the project in 25 years, rather than 10, will not be too burdensome on the surrounding communities, including Park Slope.

The meeting agenda only states that the second agenda item will be an "Adoption of Findings Related to the Atlantic Yards Land Use Improvement and Civic Project."
Last month, Supreme Court Justice Marcy Friedman ruled in favor of two community coalitions on the Atlantic Yards timetable. She remanded the proceedings to ESDC to present findings on the impact of the Development Agreement, and on whether a SEIS will be required. The hearing is scheduled for December 22.

Any community members interested in attending the Board of Directors meeting at 10:30 a.m., Thursday on Third Avenue in Manhattan must RSVP by 5:00 pm on Wednesday to (212) 803-3794. The meeting will also be webcast.
