The President of the GatewayJFK Board of Directors, Frank Liggio has been selected to serve on the JFK Redevelopment Community Advisory Council to represent business and property owners inside of the GatewayJFK corridor along with the interests of the air cargo community as a whole. In October 2018, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a $13 billion investment that will completely transform JFK into a modern 21st century airport.
The Community Advisory Council has been established to work with the Port Authority to help ensure that the local community shares in the benefits of the JFK Redevelopment Program. Liggio is one of 45 stakeholders who serve on the committee including local elected officials, community boards, clergy, civic and business leaders. Liggio will be serving on two subcommittees Business Development and Career Development/Workforce to help the Port Authority plan for the impacts of the $13 Billion redevelopment and make sure that the off-airport business community, and local residents receive their fair share of consideration and benefits from the process.
GatewayJFK has created a special committee to explore the JFK Redevelopment and will be working with local business owners to create a list of potential solutions that the Port Authority should include as part of the airport redevelopment plans. For information on this committee please email email@example.com.
