At CBN meeting Wednesday, the ESDC ombudsman will answer questions

Atlantic Yards Report

On Wednesday, February 11, the Council of Brooklyn Neighborhoods, at its General Membership Meeting, will host an Atlantic Yards Update, featuring Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) project ombudsman Forrest Taylor.

Among the questions that might be posed (though somehow I think comprehensive answers might be scarce):
--how much of the train trestle has been completed?
--why did the ESDC reverse itself, as DDDB points out, on whether the project was "shovel-ready"?
--for what federal stimulus money might the project be eligible?
--why did the ESDC let the city give the developer Forest City Ratner three years to rebuild the Carlton Avenue Bridge?

The meeting will start at 7:30 pm. It will be held at St. Cyril of Turau Belarusian Cathedral, Atlantic Avenue at Bond Street.
