Regional Planning Association letter to MTA, read at "Special Meeting"

RPALetter.jpgThis letter from the Regional Planning Association (RPA) was read at today's MTA Board's "Special Meeting." The RPA is calling for three conditions to be met: * receiving full value for the MTA property, * full pubilc disclosure of all competing bids (the profit projections were missing from version of Ratner's bid the MTA released in July), and * traffic and transportation impacts be identified and added to the real costs when considering the project.

NoLandGrab: The MTA ignored all of the RPA's requests, including the release of Ratner's profit projections which were required to be submitted with their bid.
