Community Forum about Yankee Stadium/Bronx Terminal Market Developments

On Saturday, August 27th at 10:00 a.m. a community forum will be held in Mullaly Park to educate members of the South Bronx community about two major development projects slated for the neighborhood: a new Yankee Stadium and a redeveloped Bronx Terminal Market. After the gathering, there will be a march to Yankee Stadium where participants will voice their concerns to the community and to those attending the afternoon Yankee game.

The meeting/march is sponsored by the Bronx Voices for Equal Inclusion (BVEI), a sub-committee of the Neighborhood Advisory Council, a diverse coalition of neighborhood residents and community leaders, who are demanding that the development process become more transparent, include more community input and address key concerns important to those who live and work in the South Bronx.
