Planners' Purge Newest Controversy for Nets Arena

Although they had no power to stop Bruce Ratner's plans for the Nets' new arena and surrounding mini-city, members of Brooklyn's Community Planning Board 6 let it be known they thought it was all too big. Now, Marty Markowitz, the Brooklyn Borough President, has taken his revenge, declining to reappoint many of them. The purge has led to yet more controversy, but it's not expected to any impact on the arena.
