This Week: Queens Bike-Share, Barclays Center Transpo Plan

In a relatively quiet week on the livable streets calendar, the big news will be coming out Tuesday night, when Forest City Ratner presents its transportation plan for the new Barclays Center arena. The plan has been delayed, but should provide important information about promised incentives to use transit and parking for cars and bikes. Based on what's already been revealed, a common criticism is that the plan doesn't include sufficient disincentives to drive to the arena.

    • Tonight: Queens Community Board 2 and City Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer host a community planning workshop to help decide where bike-share stations should be sited in Long Island City and Sunnyside. Preliminary maps have already been released for the area. 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
    • Tuesday: Barclays Center neighbors get an update on the arena's transportation demand management plan, which aims to minimize vehicular traffic to the area, from the developer and Empire State Development. 6:00 p.m.
    • Thursday: The Department of Transportation hosts a public workshop to gather community input on the redesign of the Zion Triangle and Legion Street Plaza in Brownsville.
