|Community Benefits Agreements: Time for Reform?|
Monday, May 17, 2010 6 PM - 8 PM
Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.
Community Benefit Agreements between developers, elected officials and community groups have grown in prominence with agreements on profile projects like Atlantic Yards in Brooklyn, Columbia University and Harlem Park in Manhattan, Yankee Stadium and Gateway Center in the Bronx, and the Mets’ Stadium in Queens. As private agreements, however, these deals pose a number of procedural, ethical, and enforcement issues.
