The organization Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn points out that today is the final day for the public to comment on the Atlantic Yards Modified General Project Plan. DDDB opposes the plan, obviously, due to its long-time stance against Forest City Ratner’s $4 billion development project. DDDB cites abuses of eminent domain, for example, or the lack of proper community input on a project that will drastically alter the geography and character of several Brooklyn neighborhoods. Whatever your feelings are towards Atlantic Yards, however, today is your last day to throw in your $0.02. For instructions on how to comment, visit the Empire State Development Corporation website.
