Land Use & Zoning chair, Mitchell Korbey, was mentioned in a New York Times article discussing a planned development of a BJ’s Wholesale Club and 800-car parking lot on 28 acres of wetlands on Staten Island’s northern shore and the environmental impact of such a build.

The Times states, "Mitchell Korbey, a lawyer for the holding company incorporated by Mr. Alpert, which owns the land, said the project would proceed and bring well-paid jobs and convenient shopping."
