Activists looking to get more involved in the fight for livable streets can start off their week tonight with Transportation Alternatives’ Community Board Jammy Jam. Learn how to become a member of your local community board, where pro-transit, bike and pedestrian perspectives can make all the difference for forward-thinking transportation initiatives. Then head over to Manhattan CB 2 to see one progressive community board in action. They’ll be discussing a request for speeding cameras at the foot of the Manhattan Bridge, a redesign of the Jane Street triangle, and the Park Smart program in Greenwich Village.
