Community board aims for Willets Point power

A Queens community board could complicate the Bloomberg administration’s $3 billion plans to redevelop Willets Point, with threats to vote against the plan tonight unless it gets the power to cast a binding vote. The board’s Willets Point head says it should not be forced to vote when the city has yet to buy the 60 acres of land or pick a developer. The committee approved the plan to transform the industrial area into a mixed-use community last week.
