Sunset Park Waterfront Access
On Februrary 2, 2017 NYC DOT proposed a series of projects that came out of the Sunset Park Upland Connectors planning process, a multi-phased community engagement effort to build safer, more comfortable routes for people to walk and bike between the Sunset Park neighborhood and waterfront jobs,
NYC DOT's Street Ambassador team will be in Sunset Park in the coming weeks to learn about how you get around the neighborhood.
The second workshop for the Upland Connectors project was held April 16th, 2016 at the offices of Brooklyn Community Board 7. NYCDOT presented the three Upland Connector streets identified by the community, based on input collected during workshop 1 (held October 28, 2015).
A MULTI-MEDIA PLANNING APPROACH:
We're pleased to present three videos produced by UPROSE that played an important role in the community involvement process of the Upland Connectors project.
Currently NYC DOT is analyzing the data collected at our first workshop. Be on the lookout for an email announcing the second workshop in March of 2016, where we will present a package of preferred routes and potential street designs identified by the community.
