With one week to go before comment deadline, no news about the second community information session

Atlantic Yards Report

A week ago, I reported how I've been asking when the promised second community information session about Atlantic Yards would be held.

The first was held on July 22, with representatives of developer Forest City Ratner and the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) facing some tough questions.

No second session has been announced yet, even as the August 31st deadline for comments approaches.
Though [former ESDC CEO Marissa] Lago's words weren't precise, the implication was that the community information sessions would help residents formulate input to the ESDC board, including comments at the public hearing and comments submitted in writing.

That means the second session would have to be held before the comment period closes.

There are seven days left.
