Community meeting set for September 5 on effort to establish Neighborhood Protection Plan around arena

Beyond the meeting at the 78th Precinct regarding Barclays Center security issues, set for August 22, the Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council announces another community meeting:
Neighborhood Protection Plan meeting with Forest City Ratner
When: Wednesday, September 5, 2012 - 7:00pm
Where: Iglesia Latina Evengelica, 506 Bergen Street (between 6th and Carlton Avenues)
What progress has been made toward the goals of the Neighborhood Protection Plan sponsored by local elected officials and civic groups representing communities surrounding the Barclays Center arena?
Join us for a discussion of what's left to be done with Ashley Cotton of Forest City Ratner and other invited guests, and bring your questions and concerns.
As I wrote recently, there have been a couple of quiet meetings regarding the plan--which requested garbage cans, new signage, and funding for two parks positions nearby, among other things--but no results yet. Council Member Steve Levin said it was essential to address traffic, crowd management, and sanitation issues before the arena opens.

Cotton heads Forest City's external relations effort and, apparently, a stand-in for the Barclays Center Community Affairs Manager that the arena has yet to hire.
