Is This Really A C.B.A.?Posted: December 19, 2012
Interesting article about an alleged community benefits agreement that is attached to a developer’s $3.5 million project to redevelop the downtown area of Hempstead Village, N.Y. on Long Island.
The C.B.A. has been negotiated by the village, subject to approval by the village and asks only for “good faith efforts” to provide construction jobs and affordable housing to local residents. Oh, and they aren’t even going to have comments at the public meeting where the alleged C.B.A. will be voted up or down.
