The traffic issues plaguing Coney Island Avenue are something of a cause célèbre around here. We announced, attended and reported on Councilman Mathieu Eugene’s Traffic Calming Forum earlier this month.
Today, Eugene followed up the forum with letters to the 66th Precinct, 70th Precinct and the Department of Transportation listing “problematic locations” and suggesting improvements and solutions.
Despite the fact that Coney Island Avenue was discussed at length during the meeting, it doesn’t appear once in the letters. Dorchester Road and East 19th Street was never mentioned at the meeting but is given a high priority in the letters.
Because it omits Coney Island Avenue, Eugene’s letter to the 66th Precinct includes no problems that actually fall under the jurisdiction of the 66th Precinct.
