This Week: Candidates Forum on Transit in Upper Manhattan

12:41 PM EDT on September 4, 2012

As the calendar turns to September, it can only mean one thing: meeting season is back. This week, there are three meetings on the calendar, discussing everything from transit to delivery cyclists. Here are the details...
    • Wednesday: Manhattan Community Board 8's Transportation Committee will meet to hear an update on streetscape improvements along 86th Street, to discuss the intersection of East 96th Street and FDR Drive, and to consider a request for four parking spaces in front of Ronald McDonald House on East 73rd Street. 6:30 p.m.
    • Thursday: The City Council's Transportation Committee is meeting to consider four bills that would affect commercial and delivery cyclists, including one that would require all commercial cyclists to complete a traffic safety course. 10:00 a.m.
    • Thursday: WE ACT for Environmental Justice is hosting a candidates forum for the 31st Senate District and 72nd Assembly District to discuss transit issues with residents of Washington Heights, Inwood, Marble Hill and Hamilton Heights.
