Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park graphic: what's built/what's coming + FAQ (pinned post)

Next Atlantic Yards Quality of Life Committee Meeting is Wednesday December 4

Expect discussion of noise, idling, illegal parking, and more at the next Atlantic Yards Quality of Life Committee meeting, which will be held Wednesday, December 4 at 6 pm at the 78th Precinct Court Room, 65 6th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11217.

(Some of those issues also should come up tomorrow night at the monthly meeting of the 78th Precinct Community Council, at 7:30 pm, in the same location, especially since the NYPD pledged a month earlier to crack down on illegal parking.)

According to Derek Lynch, Manager, Atlantic Yards Project, Community/Government Relations
for Empire State Development, the state agency overseeing/shepherding Atlantic Yards:
This [Quality of Life Committee] 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, at
In addition, please email me items that you would like to see discussed at the next meeting by Monday, December 2nd.
The meetings are open to the public for observation, but, as noted, only designated representatives are supposed to participate. In practice, visitors sometimes get to be heard.

Meetings are supposed to be bimonthly. The last one was 9/26/13.
