Does Your Schedule Permit?

The DOT is conducting a follow up workshop on Forest Hills parking ramifications should Congestion Pricing go into effect. Same format as in November, round table discussions.

Only this time, they're going to be discussing results of data collection they've took on curbside occupancy rates and turnover in Forest Hills. So it should be more substansive than the last one, where they were just soliciting public opinion.

Wednesday January 30, 2008
7pm - 9pm
Doors open at 6:30pm

Forest Hills Jewish Center
106-06 Queens Blvd. (entrance on 69th Rd.)
Between QB and Austin St.

The flyer I received says RSVP required, but I'm sure you can just show up. However, if you really want to be guaranteed a space - please RSVP to planycpark@hshassoc.com (use Forest Hills Workshop as subject line) or call 917-339-0488.

Even if you don't care about parking permits (and you should), it's a nice way to open communication between Forest Hills and reps of the DOT. Bike lanes, public plazas, Queens Blvd modification (and beautification), will only be acheived through communication.
