If you have an angry letter for City Council Members David Yassky and Bill de Blasio regarding their apathy towards the Atlantic Yards development, hold off on stamping and sending it. The Atlantic Yards Report previously expressed frustration at their absence from key public hearings, but noted that on August 4th these two councilmenâ€”finallyâ€”added their voices to the cry for greater disclosure from the developers. According to the press release from the Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council, they are “calling on the Empire State Development Corporation to fully disclose plans for the Atlantic Yards project, including an updated site plan, and prepare a supplemental environmental impact statement (SEIS) for public review.”
