Brooklyn CB 6 Committees Vote Unanimously for DOT’s Next Steps on PPW

The transportation and public safety committees of Brooklyn Community Board 6 unanimously approved a motion last night supporting DOT's proposals to, among other things, add raised concrete pedestrian islands and bike "rumble strips" to the redesigned Prospect Park West.

The full resolution is quite lengthy and includes a few of the committee's own recommendations, like measuring crashes and injuries on PPW until we have a solid three-year sample. In the main, said board member Gary Reilly, who introduced the motion, the resolution "accepts various proposals that we have already supported" and says "we're on board with these changes" proposed by DOT.

Streetsblog will post the final text of the resolution and the official vote tally when it becomes available. Last night's vote by show of hands was declared unanimous, with about 12 people raising their hands, by my count. The next meeting of the full board is April 13.
