Description: 

New York State Assembly members Hakeem Jeffries and James Brennan, and New York City Council members Letitia James, and David Yassky will gather with Brooklyn community leaders to launch “The Campaign to Reform the Governance of Atlantic Yards,” an initiative to pass new legislation that would reform the governance of the Atlantic Yards project.

Atlantic Yards is the only state project without effective public oversight and a vehicle for community input in its decision-making. To address this, the Atlantic Yards Governance Act (A11395) would create the “Atlantic Yards Trust” to oversee the project with a board of state and city appointed officials and a “Stakeholders Council” comprised of local residents appointed by local elected officials that would advise the Trust and provide an opportunity for meaningful community involvement. The Atlantic Yards Governance Act is modelled on the Hudson River Trust Act of 1998.
