1) Labor – Unless there is a written guarantee that the Gateway Development doesn’t include a BJ’s or Wal-Mart the project should be voted downA full press release will be posted when ready.
2) Merchants – Unless there is a viable relocation plan in place for the current Bronx Terminal Market wholesalers the project should be voted down
3) Community – Unless there is a true Community Benefits Agreement negotiated (not one solely crafted by the Borough President) the project should be voted down
