Make Brooklyn’s Park Avenue Safer

December 21, 2012

The Myrtle Avenue Revitalization Project LDC (MARP), has a petition on Change.org to Make Brooklyn’s Park Avenue Safer for Pedestrians.

The traffic on Park Avenue is bad for our neighborhood – it’s dangerous, fast, and loud. But we can fix Park Avenue by transforming it from a speedway to a neighborhood street. By signing this petition, you’ll tell these agencies you want action now! View the full report at http://www.myrtleavenue.org/ParkAvenueSafetyPlan.pdf. Here’s a summary of the proposals:

Sitewide Interventions:
Retime Traffic Lights to Slow Park Avenue Traffic
Add Bus Bulbs at Key Boarding Stops
Add Street Trees
Daylight Intersections
Repave and Restripe Parking Areas
Add Additional Signage
Add Additional Lighting
Introduce Median Parking
Increase Enforcement
Improve Sanitation Conditions
Repair Leaking Downspouts
Recapture Stormwater Through Green Infrastructure

And that’s just part of the list. It’s an ambitions and necessary project. Please sign the petition.
