RIOC Directors Question & Answer Session With Roosevelt Island Residents - Discuss RIOC Management Upheaval, Cornell NYC Tech, Ferries, Parks & More

Reported previously on the December 20 Question and Answer session between resident members of the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Board of Directors and members of the Roosevelt Island community.

Here's more. Among the issues discussed was the management upheaval at RIOC, land use/construction/ barging/air pollution negotiations with Cornell NYC Tech, ferry service, future of Steam Plant site, RIOC's relationship with NYC and NY State, residents/Zog corporate use of the ball fields among other items. Here's what happened

and Part 2.

Previous Question and Answer sessions between RIOC Directors and residents available here.

Meetings like this are a very valuable tool for both residents and RIOC Board Directors. I hope they continue and urge others who are interested in Roosevelt Island issues to attend and participate in the discussion.
