Community Forum on the Future of Flushing Meadows Corona Park

Friday, September 14, 2012
The coming months could go a long way in shaping the future of Queens’ largest park. A public review process is expected to begin in October for a proposed expansion of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, and Major League Soccer has proposed a plan to construct a 25,000-seat stadium on the current site of the Fountain of the Planets on the park’s northeast edge. The public review process for that plan could begin as early as the spring.

The Fairness Coalition of Queens, a group of local organizations ranging from church groups to the park's soccer leagues, will host a community forum this coming Monday featuring elected officials and community and faith leaders from the surrounding neighborhoods. Proposed plans for the projects aren’t final, and there’s still an opportunity for the public to have a direct say in the park’s future.
