Clerical Error Slows Approval Process for Atlantic Yards

Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards project appeared close to approval this month when the state development corporation certified its environmental impact statement, the next to last step before ground-breaking. Then, officials realized that they had failed to include some public comments in the statement, requiring that it be republished and reapproved. Final approval will now be pushed back til January, which poses a "modest risk" to the project. The new Nets' arena is the project centerpiece.
