Forest City Ratner is constructing the arena, but the rest of the demolished 22 acre site is a big questions mark...except for enormous "interim" surface parking lots.
In order to plan, set a better framework, and change the dynamic for the future development of the site Councilmember Letitia James, Senator Velmanette Montgomery and Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn invite you to UNITY 4, a community meeting on Wednesday, June 15th to discuss the community's plans for the Atlantic Yards site, with the UNITY Plan and its principles as a jumping off point.
The meeting will include a presentation by UNITY Plan designers and architects Marshall Brown and Ron Shiffman, a discussion of the current and future status of the site and Q&A with a panel including elected officials. Your ideas, thoughts and input will be invaluable to the meeting.

On Thursday, October 29th The Crown Heights Revitalization Movement is sponsoring a panel discussion about how we might bring more affordable housing to North Crown Heights. As many of you may know, there are several luxury housing projects in danger of failing in our neighborhood. CHRM feels that we should get as many of these homes as possible, as well as other existing buildings that need extensive renovation, converted to affordable housing, with subsidies from the government as necessary and possible. Assemblyman Hakim Jeffries has introduced legislation (bill #9136) that would create subsidies to do just that. While the Assemblyman is unable to attend, he has offered to update CHRM on the contents of the legislation.
All of the invited panelists have extensive experience in providing affordable housing. Let's hear what they have to say about bringing more affordable housing to our neighborhood and how they might be able to use the Jeffries legislation to achieve that end.
Keynote speakers and panel members:
Councilmember Letitia James, keynote speaker
Assemblyman Karim Camara, keynote speaker
