This Week in Livable Streets Events
We’re a day late with this week’s event listings, but all the good stuff is still to come. Here’s what’s on tap from the Streetsblog Calendar.
Today: Tour the Select Bus Service route along Fordham Road in the Bronx with Auto-Free New York during its July meeting. Should be an interesting discussion — the Auto-Free folks view BRT with a wary eye. The tour starts at 6:00 p.m. at the northeast corner of Fordham Road and the Grand Concourse.
Wednesday: The New York City Council is expected to approve a bill that will substantially expand bicycle access to the workplace, a long-sought objective of the livable streets movement. Come show your support and appreciation from the galleries in the council chamber. The session is scheduled to get underway at 1:30 p.m., but the City Council isn’t really known for punctuality.
Thursday: Join the Transportation Alternatives Brooklyn Committee for their monthly meeting. Starts at 7:00 p.m. at Long Island College Hospital.
Friday: We’ve got a pair of deadlines for public comment. 4:00 p.m. marks your last chance to submit comments to NYMTC on the 2010-2035 Regional Transportation Plan. And 5:30 p.m. is the deadline to submit comments to the MTA on changes to the configuration of entrances to the Second Avenue Subway stations at 72nd Street and 86th Street.
