Yassky, de Blasio, Adams sign on to request for a Supplementary Environmental Impact Statement

I guess I was too hasty in suggesting yesterday that City Council Members David Yassky and Bill de Blasio were sitting out the debate on Atlantic Yards.

BrooklynSpeaks announces:
New York City Council members Bill DeBlasio and David Yassky today joined other City and State elected officials representing districts surrounding the project in calling on the Empire State Development Corporation to fully disclose plans for the Atlantic Yards project, including an updated siteplan, and prepare a supplemental environmental impact statement (SEIS) for public review.

Also, before Yassky and de Blasio signed on, State Senator Eric Adams also joined the five initial signatories to the letter: Assembly Members Hakeem Jeffries, Jim Brennan and Joan Millman; State Senator Velmanette Montgomery ; and City Council Member Letitia James.
