Next Atlantic Yards District Service Cabinet meeting: March 15, not March 1 (and ESD's Ken Adams will be there); Transportation Focus Group to meet March 8

Atlantic Yards Report

The Atlantic Yards District Service Cabinet meetings, held about every two months, are usually interesting, since they provide an opportunity for involved agencies interact, and for Forest City Ratner to undergo questioning by the few elected officials (and their designated staffers) who care.

And some news--such as plans for Transportation Demand Management, or affordable housing--tends to surface.

At the last meeting, held 1/26/12, it was announced that the next meeting would be Thursday, March 1. That date, less than two months away, has now been pushed back to Thursday, March 15, from 9:30 to 11 am at Brooklyn Borough Hall.

One key issue is transportation, and the next meeting of the Atlantic Yards Transportation Focus Group--which incorporates community members in an advisory role, with representatives of ESD and the Borough President's Office present--will be held March 8 at 6 pm at Brooklyn Borough Hall.

The meeting is open to the press and public, but the only participants in the round-table discussion are designees from invited community groups.
