Atlantic Yards Report

New York City Council Member Letitia James, the Boerum Hill Association, the Park Slope Civic Council, the Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council, and The Tri-State Transportation Campaign are sponsoring the BK Gateway Transportation Workshop on March 31. RSVP required.

The announcement

The neighborhoods of Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, downtown Brooklyn, Carroll Gardens, Red Hook, Northern Park Slope 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. The BK Gateway Transportation Workshop will lay the groundwork for developing community driven solutions to the transportation issues facing the area.

· Discuss transportation issues affecting your neighborhood
· Share ideas with transportation experts
· Learn about strategies to increase pedestrian and cyclist safety, reduce congestion, and improve transit
· Help develop a plan for the future of transportation and transit in our community
