This Week in Livable Streets Events
It may be a short week, but there’s no shortage of activity on the Streetsblog Calendar. Here are the highlights.
- Tuesday: Auto-Free New York: Tony Avella / Sustainable Transportation for NY in the Race for Mayor. Council Member Tony Avella is best known for
leading the fight against congestion pricing and working hard to
preserve northeastern Queens’ quasi-suburban, auto-dependent
development pattern by pushing for downzonings. As a mayoral candidate, where does he stand on "sustainable transportation"? Join Auto-Free New York to find out. 5:45 p.m. sharp.
- Wednesday: Brooklyn CB 1 Transportation Committee. Tonight’s meeting will feature DOT presentations on a number of livable streets improvements, including the Kent Avenue redesign, Pulaski Bridge bike-ped plans, and Safe Routes for Seniors. 6:30 p.m.
- Thursday: Bus Rapid Transit Phase 2 Workshop. The first of seven public forums on the expansion of Select Bus Service will be held tonight in the Bronx. NYCT and DOT invite your feedback on where new BRT routes should be established and how they should operate. 6:30 p.m.
- The weekend will feature a trio of fun events, including Car-Free Saturday in Crotona Park (12 p.m. – 5 p.m.), a Tillary Street Jersey Barrier Mural Painting (Saturday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.), and the Brooklyn-by-Bike Scavenger Hunt (Sunday, 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.).
