Mr. Domozic prefaced his presentation to the Task Force by saying:
... We understand this is your community. We are coming into your community. We have a complicated project, we have a complicated mission to accomplish. However, we respect your community and we plan to work closely with you and make sure that we are as minimally intrusive to your lives as we can possible be.

We'll listen to everyone's concerns. We'll address concerns. We take very seriously your considerations and concerns as we address this project...

Here's the Cornell NYC Tech abatement and demolition plan for the site

followed by Karen Tamir of James Corner Field Operations presentation of the landscaping plan for the open public space on the Roosevelt Island campus

Sounds good so far...just don't mess with electric power, cable, communications or water supply. And oh yes....tell RIOC to make sure we are informed so we do not have lack of communication about interruptions like we did on January 20th!
