CBN's Project Report Card faces a deadline for FEIS review

Atlantic Yards Report

The Council of Brooklyn Neighborhoods (CBN) is checking up on the accuracy and thoroughness of responses to comments in the massive Atlantic Yards Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS)--and the deadline is Monday.

CBN says:

Project Report Card asks anyone who spoke at the Public Forums or sent a comment into the ESDC to grade the FEIS for responsiveness to their comments generally and by any particular concern that person spoke or wrote about.

So what happens after community members send their comments to CBN? The organization will forward them to the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) to take it into consideration before the ESDC board meeting December 8. The ESDC is widely expected to approve the FEIS, but if enough flaws are found, the agency may be prompted to do what it did once before: pull back the document and revise it for recertification.
