Arana Hankin, Director, Atlantic Yards Project, for Empire State Development, explained that the comment period was being extended to July 3 to accommodate comments raised at an upcoming June 26 meeting on arena operations. The latter was itself pushed back because of the State Liquor Authority hearing tomorrow.
"We expect folks who attend on the 26th will want to have some time to submit comments on the information presented at that meeting since it relates to TDM," Hankin said.
A notice about the extension is being sent out today. Comments can be sent until midnight July 3 to AtlanticYards@esd.ny.gov.
