At ESDC board meeting Thursday, another amendment to the funding agreements on the agenda

One item on the 22-item agenda for tomorrow's board meeting of the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) involves Atlantic Yards.

The agenda states:
7. New York (Kings County) – Atlantic Yards Land Use Improvement and Civic Project – Authorization to Amend Funding Agreements; Authorization to Take Related Actions
What exactly that means is to be determined, but previous amendments--as noted last September--relaxed rules or timetables to ease Forest City Ratner's cash flow.
