This Week: Vision Zero, JSK Book Launch, Fixing Chrystie Street

Registration has closed for Transportation Alternatives’ 2016 Vision Zero Conference, coming up at the end of this week, but if you couldn’t snag a ticket there’s still plenty to do in the world of safe streets advocacy.

Former Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan is out with a new book, Streetfight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution, about how to make change happen on city streets. You can catch her at events on Wednesday or Thursday.

The highlight of the community board calendar is Tuesday, when DOT will present a plan for a protected bike lane on Chrystie Street to Manhattan CB 3.

Check the Streetsblog calendar for the full list of events.

Keep your eyes on the calendar for updates. Let us know if you have an event we should know about.
