Next Atlantic Yards Quality of Life Committee meeting set for July 2

The next Atlantic Yards Quality of Life Committee meeting will be held on:
Tuesday, July 2, 2013
@ 6:30pm
YWCA Community Room
30 3rd Avenue
Brooklyn, NY, 11217
(Here's coverage of the meetings in May and in February.)

As stated in a message from Derek Lynch, Manager of Community/Government Relations for Empire State Development:
This meeting is a forum for representatives from the community and civic groups to engage Empire State Development, Forest City Ratner Companies and Barclays Center operators regarding issues affecting the quality of life for residents and businesses in close proximity to the arena.
Please remember to designate only 1 representative from your organization to directly participate and RSVP that individual’s name and contact information to me, Derek Lynch, at dlynch[at]
In addition, please email me items that you would like to see discussed at the next meeting by Thursday, June 27th.
Among issues up for discussion, perhaps, will be the effect of arena-bound cars and limos parking/idling on residential streets, an impact left out of the recent evaluation of the Transportation Demand Management plan.

Also, as mentioned on Atlantic Yards Watch, there have been recent complaints about concert noise, trucks on residential streets, and vibrations from work on the railyard.
