Transparency? Waiting for the ESD Board agenda

Update 9:55 am. Now the agenda and board materials are up. Nothing about Atlantic Yards.

Earlier version
So there's a board meeting this morning at 9:30 of Empire State Development, the state authority overseeing/shepherding Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park.

Occasionally the project comes up, so it's important to see the agenda to know whether it's worth attending the meeting in Midtown Manhattan, or watching on a webcast.
Updated version of announcement, with agenda/materials

However, as of 5 pm yesterday, the deadline to RSVP to get into the building ("due to building procedures," which surely would be waived if a VIP really needed to get there, right?), no agenda existed.

With less than an hour before the meeting, there's still no agenda, much less board materials.
