Bad Weather Rains on Willets Point Landowners’ Shea Parade

No Willets Point protests this afternoon.

The main Willets Point landowners group had planned a big truck rally at the Mets-Pirates game, planning to stop traffic as the contest came to a close, but now per an advisory, the group has canceled the event due to rain.

The organization, the Willets Point Industry and Realty Association, planned the protest as the City Planning Commission is slated to hold a hearing on the planned Queens redevelopment Wednesday, part of a mega-hearing that includes the proposed rezonings of the Lower East Side and the planned middle-income development in Queens at Hunters Point South. The 61-acre Willets Point slated for redevelopment sits across the street from the Mets’ new stadium, Citi Field.

The landowners group said via email that it would reschedule the protest.
