This Week: Community Boards, Pedestrian Planning, Bike Films
If you’re into bikes-in-buildings and community boards — and really, who isn’t — there are two deadlines coming up for events to be held next Monday. A cycling PSA film fest, bike rack siting and a couple of pedestrian events round out the week.
- Monday: Register today if you wish to testify in favor of the Department of Buildings’ rule change [PDF] to clarify language in the Bikes in Buildings bill. That hearing is next Monday, Nov. 23.
- Tuesday: At 6:30 p.m., the New York Bar Association hosts a panel discussion on the new
ped-friendly Broadway and what it means for the future of NYC streets.
The panel will include Kyle Wiswall of TSTC, Jeff Zupan of the RPA, and
Tim Tompkins of the Times Square Alliance. At 7:00, TA’s Biking Rules film festival showcases the best of the many
public service announcements that were submitted to promote the Biking Rules safe
- Wednesday: NYCDOT holds an open house on the Downtown Brooklyn surface
transportation circulation study, involving how all modes of travel
interact. 5:30 p.m. And today is the deadline to RSVP for TA’s Community Board Jammy Jam, to be held Nov. 23.
- Thursday: Speaking of how community boards can improve our city’s public spaces,
today Bronx CB 2 and NYCDOT present the Longwood Pedestrian
Improvement Workshop. 6 p.m.
- Sunday: The Open Planning Project, Livable Streets Initiative, and Neighbors
Allied for Good Growth bring you the Williamsburg and Greenpoint Bike
Rack Roundup — a lively competition with cool prizes to help "verify"
potential bike rack locations. 2 p.m.
