Community Board 6 Overhaul
May 23rd, 2007
Nine members of Brooklynís Community Board 6 were not reappointed to another two-year term, apparently because they voted against the Atlantic Yards project.
The†overhaul of the community board, which the blog Gowanus Lounge has dubbed the Atlantic Yards Massacre was carried out by Borough President Marty Markowitz and City Council Members David Yassky and Bill de Blasio.
The Atlantic Yards Report blog, written by Norman Oder, says there is irony in action. Many of the members, he says, are not flamethrowers, but “participated in numerous meetings of the Brooklyn Borough Board Atlantic Yards Committee, cordially raising some worthy questions.”
The Brownstoner†calls the action†”an embarrassment.”
Still, the New York Observer Real Estate blog says that “the blood-letting was not as great as some had expected or feared.”By Mark Berkey-Gerard on May 23, 2007, 9:19 am
