Community Boards Take Sober Look At Bruce Ratner's Barclays Arena Liquor License Application

Last night Community Boards 2 and 6, after a 2.5 hour meeting with public comment nearly unanimously concerned about the premature nature of the Barclays Arena application for a liquor license, voted along with the community's concerns about the inevitable approval of the license. Here's the coverage:



Community Board committees say inevitable Barclays Center liquor license should not go forward without community outreach, negotiation
Atlantic Yards Report

Committees of Brooklyn Community Boards 2 and 6, urging attention to the Barclays Center's unique placement in and near residential districts, both last night urged caution to the operators of the Barclays Center arena, saying they were unwilling to support the venue's inevitable liquor license without reservations.

After a 2.5-hour hearing in a standing-room only meeting room at the 78th Precinct stationhouse just a block from the arena site, a CB 6 committee tabled any vote on the liquor license, then voted to urge the applicant, Levy Restaurants, to set up a community liaison group to address residents' concerns.

A CB 2 committee voted to approve the license, but with heavy reservations, including issues that are related but not exactly in Levy's hands: developer Forest City Ratner's issuance of a transportation demand management plan, which was promised in December but has been delayed until May, and a clarified arena security plan, which involves coordination of arena operations with the New York Police Department, which has yet to assign a precinct to be in charge of policing the arena.

The full boards also will make their recommendations, and then have a chance to again weigh in when the State Liquor Authority holds a hearing on the 500-foot rule, required when there are other nearby establishments. The SLA is expected to approve the application; the question is whether the process will impose any conditions on the operator.

The Local [Fort Greene/Clinton Hill], Mixed Drinks as Two Community Boards Send Different Messages of Temperance

Two Brownstone Brooklyn community boards sent different messages of temperance to Barclays Center officials who were seeking approval for the arena's liquor license last night — but both boards agreed that arena operators need to do more to ensure that quality of life in the surrounding neighborhoods will not be destroyed by thousands of boozed-up basketball fans.
...

"This is a win," said Councilwoman Letitia James, the Fort Greene Democrat who had demanded that the liquor license bid be suspended until "all of those outstanding issues can be resolved."
...

"There will be drinking and driving," said Hildegaard Link, a member of Community Board 6. "How many more dead bicyclists and pedestrians to we need? This is not a joke."

"We have so many new bars coming and now they want to set up 57 stations in the arena to sell liquor. It's just too much," said Community Board 6 member Pauline Blake.
