Plaza Street Bike Lane on the Agenda at Brooklyn CB 6 Tonight

A quick reminder: Tonight’s meeting of the Brooklyn Community Board 6 transportation committee is an important one, with DOT presenting its proposal for a two-way bike lane on Plaza Street. The public is invited to participate in the meeting, so if you want to weigh in on this upgrade to the Brooklyn bike network and whether it should be protected from traffic with a row of parked cars, tonight’s your chance.

Also on the agenda tonight is a proposal to fill in a one-block gap in the Third Street bike lane between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue, and — in what seems to be an increasingly common item in the DOT toolkit — on-street bike parking for the northeast corner of Fifth Avenue by Park Place.

The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. at 1 Prospect Park West, in the Turner Room.

    Please come to this meeting to counter the NBBLers who will try to use DOT’s move away from a protected bike lane to promote their agenda against better bike lanes.  Lets draw a line in the sand (or the street) and insist on a protected bike lane.

    Why is this meeting being held so early, and in a senior citizen center of all places?

    There was a lot of road rage in that room.
