The Iron Triangle: Magnet for New Development

The MAS submitted comments on the Economic Development Corporation’s draft scope of work for Willets Point in Queens on May 14. The draft scope is the first step in the city’s environmental review process. The comments urged the city to be more specific about the costs and benefits of the EDC proposal, analyze the number of existing jobs and the impact of their loss on surrounding communities, consider the impact of the decentralization of automotive uses, and to consider alternative development scenarios that would result in the city’s first business incubator for sustainable automotive care and alternative fuel development. The EDC anticipates that the ULURP process will begin sometime in December 2007.
