Queens Business Leaders: ‘Historic Opportunity’ at Willets Point

In a push for the redevelopment of Willets Point, a group of 75 business leaders, elected officials, industry representatives and others wrote the City Council this week a letter that urged the body to approve the city’s proposed rezoning, an act it must take up within the next two months.

The letter, reported this morning in the Post, said that, "after more than 50 years of unsuccessful attempts the clean-up of Willets Point is at hand and we as community leaders face a historic opportunity."

The letter came in response to a statement of opposition to the plan by the majority of the Council. Check out the PDF here and here.
