Meeting June 26 on Barclays Center operations: security, sanitation, and on-site parking lot; expect some debate over Forest City Ratner's scope of commitment

After public meetings on transportation issues regarding the Barclays Center arena, Borough President Marty Markowitz's office has announced a meeting June 26 for community stakeholders:
Your organizations are invited to Brooklyn Borough Hall to join Kenneth Adams, President and CEO of Empire State Development, FCRC, and elected officials (or their representatives) to discuss Barclays Center arena operations with a focus on security, sanitation and the parking lot (Block 1129).

This meeting will be held:

Tuesday, June 26th @ 6pm
Community Room
Brooklyn Borough Hall
209 Joralemon Street

Following the format of Transportation Working Group meetings, participation in this round-table discussion of arena operations is limited in order to keep the meeting size manageable.
Onely one representative from each group was supposed to RSVP to Luke DePalma, Director of Policy and Planning.

Note that one issue surely to come up is developer Forest City Ratner's commitment to sanitation in the area around the arena, not merely including the arena block and parking lot, as currently planned. In the proposed Neighborhood Protection Plan, Forest City would pay for additional sanitation services.

Also expect discussion of the long-awaited plan for policing the arena, given the converging precinct jurisdictions.
