Council of Brooklyn Neighborhoods
DEIS Handbook Workshop

The COUNCIL OF BROOKLYN NEIGHBORHOODS ("CBN") today (July 12, 2006) announced additional times and locations for the series of meetings they are holding to prepare the community to respond to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed Brooklyn Atlantic Yards development. The meetings have been designed by Phillips Preiss Shapiro Associates, the lead engineering consultants contracted by CBN, and are intended to prepare the public how best to approach the Draft Environmental Impact Statement and to encourage the public to participate. At the first meeting (held July 11, 2006) CBN distributed copies of the DEIS Handbook, a new publication produced by its consultants.
"The DEIS Handbook has been very well thought out and is a great success," said Jim Vogel, Secretary and Steering Committee member for CBN. "It really explains the Environmental Review process simply and gives a ‘heads up’ on where to find information in the DEIS that you may want to respond to. Feedback has been very positive!" The Handbook is available for download from this page.
As announced previously, CBN has been working with the Community Boards 2, 6, and 8 to finalize three meetings within their respective districts. The locations and times for these meetings have been finalized. All meetings will start at 7 PM.
