Protecting quality of life for residents around the arenaThe sponsors are the Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council, the Park Slope Civic Council, and the Boerum Hill Association.
Join Ashley Cotton and Jane Marshall of Forest City Ratner in a discussion about protecting the quality of life of those living and working near Barclays Center once it opens. Issues include crowd control, safety, clean streets and sidewalks, traffic, parking and more. Bring your questions and concerns.

How finished is the arena, given that Forest City executive MaryAnne Gilmartin once said the arena had to be completed by early July for testing? What won't be ready when the building opens?
"Raucous is more appropriate," countered Council Member Letitia James.
“Yes, I know,” Marshall responded, to some chuckles.
