This Week: Vacca Q&A, Bike-Share Planning, Park Smart for LIC
Tomorrow’s a packed day on the Streetsblog calendar, starting with a morning event at NYU’s Rudin Center with City Council Transportation Committee Chair James Vacca. Wondering how Vacca intends to keep the pressure on NYPD to reform its crash investigation protocols? Or how the council member squares his public stances on street safety with his legislation adding red tape for street safety projects? Or what’s up with all the parking bills? Tuesday morning is your chance to ask.
This is also a big week for bike-share planning, with Manhattan Community Board 3 and Brooklyn Community Board 2 hosting public workshops to discuss where public bike stations should go.
- Tuesday: The Rudin Center hosts a conversation with James Vacca. 8:30 a.m. RSVP online.
- Also Tuesday: Where should bike-share stations go in East Midtown and the Upper East Side? Community Board 6 and local electeds host a public workshop about station siting with NYC DOT. 6 p.m.
- More Tuesday: NYC DOT’s Park Smart program has cut traffic while allowing more drivers to access shops in Park Slope. At this presentation to Queens Community Board 2, DOT will explore bringing smarter prices for curbside parking to the congested streets of Long Island City. 6:30 p.m.
- Thursday: Community Board 2 hosts a public workshop to plan where bike-share stations should go in Downtown Brooklyn and surrounding neighborhoods. Two sessions: one beginning at 6 p.m. and another at 7 p.m.
