Will there be another community information session? ESDC says to stay tuned

Atlantic Yards Report

At the June 23 board meeting of the ESDC, then-CEO Marisa Lago indicated there would be: "Knowing the interest in this project, we have committed to have additional community sessions beyond what is required. And we will be having a community session--a question and answer session in the community--before the public hearing and then another after the public hearing. And at those community sessions, there will be the opportunity for those community questions to be answered."

So, I asked the ESDC three weeks ago, when might a second session be held and would Forest City Ratner attend?

"The logistics are still being coordinated," ESDC spokesman Warner Johnston said last Wednesday, after I reminded him of the question.
