This Week: Brooklyn Greenway, How to Join a Community Board
Posted By Streetsblog On December 17, 2012 @ 12:28 pm In Livable Streets Events | 2 Comments
Tired of travesties like the repeated delay of important complete streets projects  at Manhattan Community Board 7? Electing City Council members with a strong commitment to safer walking and biking is probably the biggest key to moving things forward, but you can have a more direct impact by getting yourself appointed to your local community board. (The two are related — after all, it’s the electeds who do the appointing.)
In the past few years, fresh voices have made a big difference for livable streets at the community board level, helping to secure votes of support for projects like the First and Second Avenue protected bike lanes . If you live in Manhattan and want to see what it takes to join, head over to Tuesday’s community board info session hosted by Borough President Scott Stringer.
