From Elaine Weinstein:
As a representative of the Dean Street Association I attended the July 2016 meeting of Community Education Council 13. The main effort of the Committee that evening was to interview a potential replacement for an opening on the Committee. Additionally, the CEC reviewed the treasurer’s report and discussed project teams going forward.
I introduced myself as a representative of our group and asked whether the council had produced any reports that could be important to our block association. They said there were no reports issued but that if there were they would be posted on their website cec13.org. I plan to attend the next meeting scheduled for August 9th.
Going forward our goal is to encourage further transparency so that the community is informed of their process and decision making authority.
If anyone is interested in joining me feel free to email me.
Please attend the upcoming Atlantic Yards Quality of Life Meeting for information, or if you have questions about the significant changes to our neighborhood anticipated to start in weeks. It is an opportunity to speak directly to the architects of some of the buildings in the project, and raise any concerns you may have about impacts from construction. This will be your only opportunity before work is anticipated to accelerate.
The architects of 19-story 535 Carlton and possibly taller 17-story 550 Vanderbilt Avenue, (both between Dean and Pacific Streets), will be in attendance. The construction of these buildings will be added to the ongoing work on the arena roof, the tunnel under Atlantic Avenue, LIRR rail yard work, and stalled B2. Details of construction will be provided including temporary elimination of on and off-street parking, narrowing of streets, sidewalk closures, nighttime work, construction staging and potential cutting of street trees.
Details of the changes are attached in two community notices [see here and here] addressing changes in the east and west parts of the project. For additional information feel free to contact our block association using this link: https://deanstreet11217.wordpress.com/
