Responding to the ESDC on Atlantic Yards
The pro-forma public hearings have come and gone, and we are now in a public comment period. It is vital that everyone in the community let the ESDC and the 3 Men in a Room (Governor Paterson, Assemblyman Sheldon Silver, and…some guy in the State Senate…) know that this is totally unacceptable!
Why Should I Comment?
Government only works when the Public is paying attention. Atlantic Yards has been designed to keep the Public out of the process. As a result, we’re looking at billions in subsidies and grants with no real public benefits on the horizon, all just to build an arena and blight the neighborhoods. Our money. Our neighborhoods.
