This Week: Chinatown Transpo Plan, Safe Streets for Seniors

11:09 AM EST on December 13, 2010

Manhattan community boards are doing some listening this week. Downtown community boards will see the Chinatown Working Group's transportation action plan, which will attempt to lay out a comprehensive strategy for the area, as well the latest work on a separate traffic plan for the ever-clogged Canal Street. DOT will also unveil the results for its Midtown Safe Streets for Seniors findings to the local community board.

    • Tuesday: Manhattan CB 2 discusses the Chinatown Working Group's transportation action plan, as well as a request to add another stop to the East Side Select Bus Service at 8th Street. 6:45 p.m.
    • Wednesday: It's Manhattan CB 3's turn to hear from the Chinatown Working Group, followed by the most recent work of the multi-year Canal Area Transportation Study. 6:30 p.m.
    • Also Wednesday: Manhattan CB 4 talks about two DOT programs, Safe Streets for Seniors and the new pop-up cafes. 6:30 p.m.
    • Thursday: The Office of Long-Term Planning and Sustainability hosts its final community conversation about the update of PlaNYC, this time in South Brooklyn. 6:00 p.m.
