City Council OKs Willets Point Redevelopment (Iron Triangle Tracker)

The City Council has approved the plan to redevelop that incomprehensible wasteland Willets Point by a vote of 42-2. The plan will take upwards of ten years to complete, and the city has been actively trying to buy up the remaining privately-owned parcels of land. Many landowners have graciously accepted the city's offers of relocation, though a number have resisted to this point. The council's approval gives the city far more leverage in their negotiations, knowing they can always pull the eminent domain card, hopefully only as a last resort. This is a big win for the city and the Mets, as well as for fans who will eventually have a place to hang out before and after games instead of driving the unpaved roads that could otherwise pass as those of an undeveloped country if we weren't so sure that the area is actually part of Queens.

Community board backs Willets Point plan

The Queens Community Board 7 voted 21-15 in favor of the Willet's Point redevelopment plan. "With the community board’s approval, the project now moves on to Queens Borough President Helen Marshall for review. A hearing is scheduled for July 10, although Ms. Marshall is likely to support the plan. The land use review will conclude in November with a vote by the full City Council."
