Community Boards Set to Review Livable Streets Proposals

1:48 PM EDT on April 1, 2008

Over the next week or so, community boards in Queens, Manhattan and Brooklyn will take up planned livable streets projects, as described below.

    • Thursday, April 3 - Queens CB2: A street conversion of Barnett Avenue to a one-way westbound from Woodside Avenue to 39th Avenue, and a request for speed bumps at several locations along Skillman Avenue.
    • Tuesday, April 8 - Manhattan CB7: Traffic calming on West 106th Street, including buffered bike lanes in both directions.
    • Thursday, April 10 - Brooklyn CB8: Redesign for Vanderbilt Avenue between Dean Street and Grand Army Plaza, including the addition of bike lanes and Greenstreets medians.

Opposition is expected to the Queens and Manhattan projects, especially over potential loss of parking. As evidenced by the recent failed effort to pedestrianize Prince Street, it is important that as many advocates as possible, particularly those who live in the respective districts, come to these meetings.

More project proposals are planned for later this month and into May. Streetsblog will keep you posted.
