DEIS hearing transcript, speaker list available, nuggets to be mined

Atlantic Yards Report

Norman Oder posted an amuse bouche on the DEIS hearing speaker list:

For those who weren't at the Aug. 23 Draft Environmental Impact Statement hearing, the Council of Brooklyn Neighborhoods has posted the sign-up sheets, the speaker list, and the transcript from the Empire State Development Corporation.
There are lots of interesting nuggets; for example, M'balia Rubie, the teacher who said (p. 141 of PDF) she couldn't prioritize traffic and shadows over jobs and housing, signed in (p. 7 of PDF) as a member of the Downtown Brooklyn Neighborhood Association, a signatory to the Atlantic Yards Community Benefits Agreement led by the Rev. Herbert Daughtry, but she wasn't announced as such nor did she make it known.
