Just a reminder to please place your questions in the Q&A

I want to re-iterate the multiple concerns regarding energy and Steinor's commitment to work with the community that I shared on the Community Board 7 meeting last Monday. 1. In the CB7 meeting, Steinor shared that they have plans to build a new substation that was not mentioned here. 2. There was no plans for energy storage. 3. The planned 2 Megawatts of energy includes NO portion dedicated to community solar i.e. no direct savings/economic benefits shared with the community. UPROSE has worked tirelessly to create an equitable solar market. In the CB7 Meeting last week, Doug Steinor claimed there was no "economic" way to share even a small portion of the giant project for community solar. Though we helped create a state incentive they would ONLY qualify for if they worked with CBOs and have community solar. 4. On the site plan it shows solar + green roof, but when questioned- Steinor studios said it was either or not both.

We are very concerned about how it appears that Steinor Studios is only interested in dictating the type of "benefits" for the community instead of being truly committed to working with the community to ensure development is in alignment with community concerns, needs, and priorities

Shouldn't it be a nonprofit organization that manages and stewards the fund?
I will stay on the line but will be on audio only.

but you need port authority to give you the right of way to give you that park - pedestrian - cyclists - access?
