BROOKLYN - While some opponents fight the Atlantic Yards project, others want to change the review process for similar developments in the future. Opponents are demanding the review process become more transparent and allow for more public input. They want community groups to have an active role when it comes to development.

They also say distrust about a single project can end up spilling over into other areas. Related Information:
