Mark Your Calendars: City Announces Vision Zero Workshops

This afternoon, DOT released the schedule for nine Vision Zero workshops in all five boroughs over the next three months. These workshops build upon the Vision Zero town halls the city is hosting now by asking residents to prioritize street safety initiatives, pinpoint dangerous locations, and discuss solutions with agency staff.

The meetings are intended to inform DOT and NYPD as they develop pedestrian safety plans for each borough. Workshops kick off in Brooklyn before heading to the Bronx, Queens, Manhattan and concluding in Staten Island:

  • Thursday, April 24: Brooklyn: Plymouth Church (Hillis Hall), 75 Hicks Street. 6:30-8:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, April 29: Brooklyn: Brooklyn College (Student Center, 2nd Floor), Campus Road and E. 27th Street. 6:30-8:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, May 6: Bronx: Lehman College Music Building (Faculty Dining Room), 250 Bedford Park Boulevard West. 6:30-8:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, May 15: Bronx: Hostos Community College Cafe?, 500 Grand Concourse. 6:30-8:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, May 21: Queens: Bohemian Hall, 29-19 24th Avenue. 6:30-8:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, May 29: Queens: Jamaica Performing Arts Center, 153-10 Jamaica Avenue. 6:30-8:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, June 11: Manhattan: Our Lady of Pompeii, 25 Carmine Street. 6:30-8:30 p.m.

  • Thursday, June 26: Staten Island: Curtis High School Cafeteria, 105 Hamilton Avenue. 6:30-8:30 p.m.

“These workshops are an open call for all citizens looking to shape the future of their neighborhoods,” Transportation Commissioner Trottenberg said in a statement. “Building on a city’s worth of local insight, they will lay the groundwork for streets that work better for everyone.”
