Meeting 5:30 pm invites public input on proposed new app to log comments/complaints on project impacts

Late yesterday came this message from Empire State Development, the state agency overseeing/shepherding Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park:
Empire State Development Corporation (ESD) will host an Atlantic Yards Community App input meeting tomorrow [today, May 27].
5:30 - 6:30 PM
Shirley Chisholm State Office Building
55 Hanson Place, Brooklyn NY 11201
1st Floor Conference Room
Please come and share your suggestions on features you would like to see in the new software system. If you have any questions please contact Nicole Jordan at Thank you for your continued commitment to the overall success of this project.
This app--a way to centralize public comments and complaints about the impacts of project construction and operation--could be a good thing, especially if it centralizes all communication, including via 311 and from people who don't have smartphones.

However, if complaints are deemed "closed" when they're not really resolved--as suggested at a meeting last week of the Atlantic Yards Community Development Corporation (AY CDC)--that won't represent progress.
