The Tri-State Transportation Campaign — in collaboration with City Councilmember Letitia James and the Park Slope Civic Council — will be hosting a panel discussion on the BK Gateway Vision Plan on Saturday, February 9, 10 a.m., at the YWCA, 30 Third Avenue.
From the PSCC:
The plan, which seeks to address major transportation and land use challenges facing central Brooklyn, grew out of community input and has been in development for over half a year. The event will feature a presentation about the plan, followed by a response panel from federal, state, and local elected officials.
The plan aims to improve a transportation infrastructure that has failed to keep up with the community’s growing population and transit ridership. The report highlights these challenges, and recommends a variety of methods for accommodating growth, easing congestion, and improving safety, such as:
• implementation of residential parking permits
• targeted subway service improvements on the R, N and D lines
• creation of a “Pedestrian Safety Rapid Response Team” to address safety concerns around the Barclays Center
• an expanded protected cycling network, particularly along Flatbush and Atlantic Avenues
Space is limited, so make sure to RSVP to Ryan Lynch, associate director of the Campaign, at [email protected].
