AY unicorns: the Independent Compliance Monitor and the Community & Government Relations Manager (maybe we'll learn about them Thursday)

Are there Atlantic Yards unicorns?

The Independent Compliance Monitor required by the Atlantic Yards Community Benefits Agreement is at least 18 months late and arguably more than five years late.

The Community and Government Relations Manager promised by Empire State Development, the state agency overseeing Atlantic Yards, was first sought in June.

These positions remain unfilled. Like the unicorn, they are, at least for now, mythical beings.

What's the impact? Less oversight. Cui bono?

Maybe we'll learn more Thursday about progress toward filling those positions, at the bi-monthly Atlantic Yards District Service Cabinet meeting, scheduled for 9:30 am at Borough Hall.
