Don’t Let a Few Raindrops Keep You Away From Tonight’s CB 6 Hearing

Opportunities to make your voice heard on the city's transportation policy don't get much bigger than tonight's Brooklyn Community Board 6 hearing about the Prospect Park West re-design. Your presence and testimony can help make this pivotal project permanent and show the press that local support for traffic calming and safer cycling runs deep. The well-connected bike lane opponents who are suing the city to reverse the redesign are making noise about slowing down bike projects citywide, so a strong showing will also have an impact on safer streets beyond Park Slope.

It's a big deal -- don't let a few raindrops keep you away.

Here's where to go:

John Jay High School237 7th Avenue, Auditorium (between 4th/5th Streets)Brooklyn, NY 11215

The hearing is open to all. Get there before 6:30 p.m. if you plan to speak.
