UPDATED, 10:22 a.m., May 11: Queens Community Board 7 will hold a public hearing on Monday to discuss the Related Companies and Sterling Equities’ Willets Point and Willets West development plans, as part of the city’s public review process of the 62-acre Queens project, according to a blog operated by advocacy group Willets Point United.

The development includes a 200-room hotel and the conversion of a parking lot into 1 million square feet of entertainment and retail space, as previously reported. Plans also now call for nearly doubling the Willets Point site from to 109 acres, according to the blog, which is run by a coalition of business and land owners that oppose the developers’ plans.

Clarification: A previously published version of this post said that, according to Willets Point United, a Community Board 7 subcommittee had voted 7-2 against Related and Sterling’s development plan in a non-binding vote. According to a spokesperson for the project, the vote that took place determined whether the subcommittee would vote on the issue at that meeting, and was not part of the public review process.
