Downtown Brooklyn residents have until Tuesday, July 3, 2012 at midnight to submit comments and questions on FCR's draft Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Plan to AtlanticYards@esd.ny.gov. The NYS Empire State Development Corporation will compile responses to questions, and post the final TDM Plan along with responses to all questions by the end of July.
The goals of the TDM are to reduce vehicular traffic to the arena and minimize the effects of the traffic that is generated by the facility (although many local elected officials and community representatives favor the more comprehensive “Neighborhood Protection Plan”
which calls for measures that include the institution of residential parking
permits, increased garbage can placement, and an early cutoff for alcohol sales).
