"The Committee on Willets Point of Queens Community Board 7 voted 'yes' Monday night to supporting the city's plan to redevelop Willets Point with the following conditions:
1) No eminent domain abuse. (What constitutes abuse? Come on!)
2) They want a $300 million fund for mitigation issues. You know they will settle on 10% of that - it's just another way of them making money off the backs of people who never got a cent for anything from the city over the past 30 years.
Before they started the meeting they said they met with Deputy Mayor Bob Lieber already and got some concessions and that if these 2 things were not met they would vote it down. Sounds like a deal was already made before the hearing.
We need a show of support on Monday 6/30/08 @ 7PM at
UNION NURSING HOME, 33-23 UNION STREET, FLUSHING
at which time the public will be allowed to speak before the vote of the full community board. If we don't stand up now this kind of crap will continue and get worse in Queens. Please show up and support us.
Oh yes, there's no doubt a deal was made, that is how it is always done. Read the Curbed report to see how badly they failed at trying to hide this.
