Complete Streets?

In today's ever-changing world, it's hard to imagine how we will be transporting ourselves in the future.  What we do know is that there are and will be people on our streets using methods other than private automobile.  We have those who are on foot, those in wheelchairs, as well as those on bicycles, scooters and skateboards

56th Street School Survey

The City asked us to further gauge support from families with local school children.  A survey was crafted in coordination with Councilman DiCiccio’s office to address just that.  The survey was sent out to parents by the schools via email. Over 600 parents responded to the three questions and the results were astonishing as shown in the graphs. Most surprisingly, we also received over 250 written feedback comments from parents. A clear case has been made to enhance the pedestrian and bicycle connectivity of 56th Street. It’s obvious there is a definite need to calm traffic and control speed.  Safety for school children is the primary concern. However joggers, bicyclists, and pedestrians will use it too, so everyone can enjoy 56th Street.
