Clarifying the Community Board 6 committee vote, and the genesis of the DoT plan

Atlantic Yards Report

Some commentary and reportage on the vote by the Community Board 6 Transportation Committee Thursday night overstated the opposition to the city Department of Transportation's plans to make Sixth and Seventh avenues one-way.

The Brooklyn Paper offered the headline Board votes down one-way proposal. On Streetsblog, Aaron Naparstek wrote that the committee "fully and unequivocally rejected" the proposal.

Actually, as reported in this blog, as well as by Robert Guskind in the Gowanus Lounge and Neil deMause in the Village Voice online, the committee, expressing disapproval, voted to table discussion on the plans until further talks with DoT and implementation of community-requested changes. The DoT's plans for Fourth Avenue were similarly put on hold.
