The agenda

It's progress that they've released an agenda, but it's pretty vague Beyond approval of minutes and an operating budget, there's a "President's Report," which could cover anything.

One big question is whether they will hear any details on--and answers regarding--the proposed office tower I've dubbed the "Brooklyn Behemoth," involving the shift of the bulk of the B1 tower slated for the arena plaza across the street to Site 5, currently home to Modell's and P.C. Richard, creating one of the buildings in the city.

There will also be an opportunity for public comment.
