Next Atlantic Yards CDC meeting: maybe early October

One forum where uncertainty about the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park timetable--with no new buildings planned--should get further attention is the next meeting of the Atlantic Yards Community Development Corporation (AY CDC), the advisory body that's a subsidiary of Empire State Development (ESD), the state authority overseeing/shepherding the project.

Except we're not sure when the AY CDC, which is supposed to meet quarterly (but last met 6/6/17), is going to meet.

At Tuesday's bi-monthly Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Quality of Life meeting, I asked Tobi Jaiyesimi, who serves as both as ESD's Atlantic Yards Project Manager and AY CDC Executive Director, about the next AY CDC meeting.

"That was actually on my list of things to do," she responded. "It hasn't been confirmed yet, because we are running into the ever problem that we always run into, which is the idea of a quorum, but we are hoping to get something scheduled for the first week of October. I recognize that that is only two-and-a-half weeks away, and hopefully the moment I have everything firmed up, I can send out notice to the community."

She wouldn't offer a tentative date. "Once I have confirmation, I will make sure to send it out to the community."

So stay tuned.
