Tonight: Keep Up the Momentum for a Car-Free Summer in Central Park

Posted By Brad Aaron On June 15, 2011 @ 2:20 pm In Car-Free Parks,Central Park | 1 Comment

Amid the flurry of community board votes [1] this week on the proposed trial to make Central Park car-free this summer, we missed tonight’s CB 8 full board meeting.

The car-free trial resolution has pretty much sailed through in CB votes across Manhattan [2], and it cleared a combined vote of the CB 8 transportation and parks committees with only one vote against. As always, turnout is key. CB 8 is one of the districts bordering the park, all of which will have to pass the resolution in order to have a chance of overcoming mayoral resistance [3].

Tonight’s meeting will be held at 6:30 at Memorial Sloan-Kettering, 430 E. 67th St. Auditorium.
