"Why should people get to see plans? This isn't a public project."

Media Alert: Atlantic Yards Protests, Press Conferences and Public Hearing

MEDIA ALERT

Wednesday. July 29th 1:30 and 5:30

Atlantic Yards:
Press Conferences, Protests & Public Hearings


BROOKLYN, NY — Tomorrow, Wednesday July 29th, the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC, the state agency "overseeing" developer Forest City Ratner’s beleaguered Atlantic Yards development proposal in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn) is holding a 2pm and 6pm public hearing on the Modified General Project Plan, where the public is allowed to give 3 minutes of oral testimony.

While the ESDC holds these hearings on the Ratner project, the public has yet to see an Atlantic Yards site plan, project rendering or model, cost-benefit analysis, security study or realistic construction timeline.

"Atlantic Yards is a rip-off for New Yorkers. And now we are being asked to comment on a phantom project, to 'review' a project without being able to view the project plans. This is beyond ludicrous. Its farcical," said Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn spokesman Daniel Goldstein. "It is further evidence that Atlantic Yards is a sham project undergoing a sham process.”

In response to the hearing, leaders of the opposition to Atlantic Yards, Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn, is calling two press conferences and two protests prior to and during each of the scheduled hearings.
