Today's RIOC Operations Committee meeting includes this Agenda Item:
Status of Meditation Steps Repair Work
This post from April 2011 reported on the:
... decrepit condition of the Roosevelt Island Meditation Steps with holes

where  wooden planks should be...
At that time some patch work was done to the holes in the steps and RIOC Vice President of Operations Fernando Martinez stated:
We have ordered wood to repair the meditation steps.  It is our plan to completely renovate the entire area, late this year or early 2012.
We shall see what the current plans for Meditation Steps are later today at the Operations Committee meeting.

The wood Mr. Martinez presented as a suggested replacement product at the Operations Committee looked really good and seemed to be a very high quality product.  I look forward to the finished installation.
