More Openness and Transparency on Roosevelt Island - RIOC Governing Statute is Now Online

Chapter 889 of the New York State Unconsolidated Laws of 1984 is the stature that authorized the creation of the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation (RIOC) as a New York public benefit corporation with the power to plan, develop, operate, maintain and manage Roosevelt Island. Essentially it is the governing document for Roosevelt Island and together with the Roosevelt Island General Development Plan and the Master Lease between the City and State of NY controls the fate of Roosevelt Island.
Recently, RIOC provided copies of the General Development Plan and the Master Lease which are now available for any Roosevelt Island resident to view online.
Thanks to the efforts of State Senator Jose Serrano and his staff, Chapter 889, the Roosevelt Island governing statute, is now online as well.

Rick - I cannot download and print the GDP, Master Lease, and Chapter 889 because I am not a Premium member of Scribd. I do not wish to pay Scribd to become a Premium member in order to do so. I think Scribd imposing this hurdle of having to pay to download and print these documents is unfair although I respect that perhaps this is the only way they can make money. Is there any way to download and print the above three documents for free, perhaps at another website? Thanks, Kitty.
