From the Queens Tribune:
Willets Point United will be heard in court, after all.
The City Economic Development Corp. attempted to keep the collective of
Willets Point property owners out of a State Supreme Court hearing on
NYCEDC’s restructuring, but the court this week announced a hearing and
is permitting WPU to attend.
“We are gratified that the court has recognized the obligation under the
law that the EDC [sic] re-organization must be subject to a public
hearing,” WPU said in a statement. “At the same time, we are saddened by
the way in which a quasi-public agency has tried to stifle this
mandated hearing and, even worse, try to prevent Willets Point property
owners from participating. Clearly, EDC [sic] has a lot to hide and its
behavior leaves a lot to be desired.”
