Public meeting May 22 on Transportation Demand Management plan for Barclays Center

As previously reported, there will be a public meeting on May 22 at Brooklyn Borough Hall to hear presentations on the Atlantic Yards/Barclays Center Transportation Demand Management plan, aimed to reduce driving to the arena.

The plan is about six months late, presenting a schedule that concerned elected officials, like Council Member Steve Levin, say is too tight. The plan will first be unveiled publicly that morning, at a bi-monthly meeting of the Atlantic Yards District Service Cabinet, scheduled for 9:30 am at Borough Hall..

Representatives of developer Forest City Ratner, namely consultant Sam Schwartz, will make a presentation, and representatives of the MTA and LIRR, though not on the notice below, were said by state officials to be presenting.

The meeting is sponsored by Empire State Development, the state agency overseeing Atlantic Yards, in association with Brooklyn Community Boards 2, 6, & 8.

Community residents will have 30 days to file comments, after which state officials promise a response in 30 days.
