CB2: BrooklynSpeaks proposal should beef up role of community boards

Atlantic Yards Report

The recommendations by BrooklynSpeaks for reforming the governance of Atlantic Yards deserve some modification to beef up the role of community boards, according to Shirley McRae, Chairperson of Community Board 2.

Last week, McRae wrote to BrooklynSpeaks' Gib Veconi:

The Executive Committee believes that the community boards should have the same relationships to the proposed “Project Oversight Entity” and “Stakeholder Council” as the local elected officials, as diagrammed in Figure 2 of the draft.

For further explanation and Veconi's response, check out the full article. [Click image to enlarge.]
