Manhattan Community Board 12’s Traffic and Transportation Committee will consider a resolution tonight requesting that DOT "test the feasibility of creating a greenway connector along Dyckman
Street," in Inwood.
Tonight will mark the fourth time the Dyckman Greenway Connector has come before the committee since members of Inwood and Washington Heights Livable Streets, who originated the proposal, made their first presentation in February. The project has the support of committee chair Mark Levine, who drafted the reso, but other committee members, while never rejecting the idea altogether, have suggested delaying any action by CB12 until next spring. A recent resolution to add parking on Dyckman, meanwhile, sailed through the committee and on to the full board, where it was approved unanimously with no discussion, all in a matter of weeks.
Whether or not you ride a bike, if you live in Northern Manhattan and are interested in a livable, traffic-calmed Dyckman Street, the connector proposal could use your support. These meetings tend to be informal affairs, with committee members often seeking input from attendees. If nothing else, members of the public are asked to vote on resolutions, and those votes are noted on record.
Tonight’s meeting will be held at CB12 HQ, 711 W. 168th Street (enter from Haven Avenue), at 7:00 p.m.
