At Borough Hall tomorrow, an invite-only meeting on AY-related transportation issues (and, apparently, without Forest City Ratner)

Remember how City Council Member Letitia James and others have asked, at the bi-monthly meetings of the Atlantic Yards District Service Cabinet, for a once-promised Transportation Working Group?

Well, there's a meeting tomorrow at Borough Hall that seems to be a start, though it looks like a one-off, and without the participation of developer Forest City Ratner.

Luke DePalma, Transportation Policy Analyst in the Brooklyn Borough President's Office recently sent a notice to community organizations in the areas near the Atlantic Yards project site:
Your organizations are invited to participate in a meeting with elected officials (or their representatives) and Empire State Development to discuss community transportation concerns associated with the Atlantic Yards project / Barclays Center.
In the interest of keeping the meeting productive with so many participants, please designate only 1 representative from each of your respective groups to participate in the round-table discussion and RSVP to me...
I was told the meeting was open to the press but not, as with the Atlantic Yards District Service Cabinet meetings, open to cameras.
