Tonight: Public Hearing for Bay Ridge Summer Streets

A quick note from Brooklyn Community Board 10 regarding a meeting set for 7:00 tonight:

[The CB 10] Traffic & Transportation Committee will host a public hearing to discuss our elected officials' suggestion to create a "Summer Streets Pedestrian Mall" along 3rd Avenue between 82nd and 92nd Streets on Friday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. during the months of July and August. This would involve the street closure of 3rd Avenue to vehicular traffic with side street crossings remaining open to traffic from 82nd Street to 92nd Street.

This proposal has the support of Sen. Marty Golden but has received the customary preemptive drubbing in the media. With southern Brooklyn rivaling Park Slope as the epicenter of livable streets battles, opposition is expected. Here are the details, if you can make it: St. Anselm's McMahon Auditorium, 365 83rd St. Handicapped access ramp is located at the side of the Church. 7 p.m.
