Parking Workshops Set for Queens and Brooklyn

10:22 AM EST on January 28, 2008

The Department of Transportation will hold three more neighborhood parking workshops this week, two in Queens and one in Brooklyn.

In tandem with congestion pricing, residential parking permits and other curbside parking reforms being considered by DOT could eventually lead to city-wide reductions in neighborhood traffic and double parking. As shown by Streetsbloggers who have attended prior workshops, the presence of even one non-car owner -- or someone who has a car but understands that public street space has value beyond its use as private vehicle storage -- can shape the discussion.

Here is this week's calendar:

Tuesday, 1/29: Long Island City
6:30 p.m.
Doors open at 6:00
Citicorp Building
1 Court Square

Wednesday, 1/30: Forest Hills, Queens
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Doors open at 6:30
Forest Hills Jewish Center
106-06 Queens Boulevard

Thursday, 1/31: Park Slope, Brooklyn
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Doors open at 6:30
Congregation Beth Elohim
274 Garfield Place (at 8th Ave.)

If you attend a workshop, and are able to take notes, please drop us a line with your report.
