Atlantic Yards Environmental Review Workshop

Tuesday, July 11, 7 pm

St. Cyril's Belarusian Cathedral

Atlantic Avenue and Bond Street

"ATLANTIC YARDS" Handbook for the Environmental Review

THE COUNCIL OF BROOKLYN NEIGHBORHOODS (CBN) presents a series of meetings to help the public respond to the upcoming Draft Environmental Impact Statement.
CBN has announced the first in a series of meetings to prepare the community to respond to the DEIS for the proposed Brooklyn Atlantic Yards development.
Before the project can proceed, New York State must conduct a study to determine all potential impacts of the proposal. The results of the study will be published in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS.) By law, the public has a right to comment on the EIS at open hearings, and these comments must be taken into consideration before the project can be approved. Your participation can make a difference in the development of this historic site.
These meetings have been designed by CBN's team of contracted engineers, led by Phillips Preiss Shapiro Associates, to help citizens understand what is in the DEIS, and how to express responses at the public hearings.
The first CBN workshop will be held at St. Cyril's Belarusian Cathedral, Atlantic Avenue and Bond Street, on July 11th at 7 p.m.
CBN is also working with Community Boards 2, 6, and 8 to finalize three later meetings within their respective districts. These presentations will take place during the month of July. Dates and times for these presentations will be released shortly.
CBN is recruiting volunteers to work individually and in small groups on the community's response. Your Participation matters!
