The city took the next step toward its multi billion- dollar plan to redevelop Willets Point last week, issuing a request for proposals asking firms to develop a worker assistance and relocation plan for the more than 1,300 people currently employed in the area.
City to help Willets Pt. workers
New York City Economic Development Corporation President Robert Lieber said the plan, which would create an 18-month program for training, placement and immigration services for workers in the area, is part of the responsibility of the city to respect the life and work of those who will be forced out by the city's redevelopment of the small patch of land.
