Surely the state and developer Greenland Forest City Partners have information they wish to share.
But if they need a record of construction and operations incidents affecting the community around the project site--cars on the sidewalk, illegal truck parking, traffic jams, etc.--they should go to the #BCIZA hashtag (Barclays Center Impact Zone Alliance) on Instagram. Below are some examples.
By the way, the meeting was originally called the Quality of Life Committee, with expected citizen participation; it then became a Community Update Meeting, a "developer meeting," according to a state official. Now it's supposed to be called Quality of Life Committee again.
The subsequent Atlantic Yards Community Development Corporation meeting was also shifted, from August 16 to Sept. 20. That's usually 3-5:30 pm; no location has been set, but it's often at Long Island University.
Imagine my discomfort seeing this car pull out of the garage at 700 Pacific Street and head my way in the sidewalk. The driver pointed out he had no choice because no egress had been created for the garage. He was right. This is in direct violation of the commitment spelled out on the community liaison's notice from August 25th.

In order to back truck into block 1129 at 535 Carlton traffic on Carlton has to be stopped. In this case it was backed up past Dean. This maneuver has never been detailed to the public.

Two tractor trailer trucks associated with B3 are illegally located on Dean east of Vanderbilt. Both are off of any legal truck route. In addition one is parked in a bus stop. I spoke to the drivers who were the ones to identify they were associated with B3. They said they were hauling containers. The contractor told them to leave the site and find parking in order to return. They were given no further instructions. The contractor told them there is no space in the immediate vicinity of B3. This is s violation of NYC regulations because they are both off designated truck routes and blocking a bus stop. It is also a violation of ESD's designated truck protocols.

Barclays Center related trucks parked on Dean Street near playground. Drivers told to pull forward and wait. This block is not a truck route. Barclays Center related delivery trucks are a regular presence off the DOT designated truck route.

Two separate incidents of construction workers illegally sitting on stoops. One worker was on Dean between 6th and Flatbush. The other was on Carlton between Pacific and Dean. Photos August 29th at 10:45 and 11:00 am. At least they are wearing their helmets! No identifying stickers visible but they are likely to be working for Tishman given their location. #bciza #pacificparkbk @nypd78thpcc @nycmayorsoffice @atlanticyards_pacificpk_report @tishmanbuilds @hdr_inc @STV_Group @cmlauriecumbo
