Help solve the many transportation issues around Atlantic Yards

New York City Council Member Letitia James and the Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council are sponsoring the BK Gateway Transportation Workshop, which will lay the groundwork for developing community driven solutions to the transportation issues facing the Atlantic Yards area.

The neighborhoods of Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Downtown Brooklyn, Carroll Gardens, Red Hook, and Brooklyn Heights face significant transportation challenges. Existing traffic and parking congestion, demands on transit service, and dangerous roads for cyclists and pedestrians already pose hurdles for residents, businesses and the environment. The opening of the Barclays Center at Atlantic Yards will further compound these challenges.

At this workshop, you can

  • Discuss transportation issues affecting our community
  • Planning workshops with transportation experts
  • Assist in developing a plan to help guide the New York City Department of Transportation
  • Help develop a plan for the future of transportation and transit in our community

Saturday, March 31, 2012, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
