Windsor Terrace Talks Traffic

On Thursday night, Community Board 7 and the Windsore Terrace Alliance hosted a "Public Speak Out" on traffic and transportation issues at the Grand Prospect Hall. More than 100 people attended, including residents, officers from the 72nd Precinct, members of community groups and members of Community Board 7. A number of local officials also attended including Rep. Yvette Clarke and her staffers, Assem. Jim Brennan and a representative from Council Member Bill de Blasio's office. News 12 apparently covered the meeting and did a segment on neighborhood transportation issues. We got an email from Lauren Elvers Collins of the Windsor Terrace Alliance who reports:
A number of residents spoke out about specific concerns, including the Dept. of Transportation's decision to quietly limit vehicles in Prospect Park during certain hours, a plan for much-needed improvements on Park Circle, and the problem of people from other neighborhoods using Windsor Terrace as a parking lot. CB7 is planning two follow-up meetings (one for Windsor Terrace and one for Sunset Park) focusing on congestion pricing and the WTA will be working with them on a number of the issues raised at the traffic forum. Overall, a great meeting and a great start for a new grassroots community group!
More information on transportation and other community issues is available at the group's website.
