Is 20 mph plenty for Park Slope, Prospect Heights, and other local communities?

NYCDOT is looking at locations in all five boroughs to install Neighborhood Slow Zones (NSZs), a community-based program that reduces speed limits from 30 mph to 20 mph within a select area and adds safety measures in order to change driver behavior. The department is currently accepting applications from neighborhood groups and individuals for these zones.

Come to this informational meeting to find out more about the program from local civic organizations and elected officials. The session is co-sponsored by Councilmember Letitia James, Councilmember Brad Lander, Councilmember Stephen Levin, P.S. 10, and Park Slope Neighbors.

If you can't make it to the meeting, be sure to check out PHNDC's proposal for a NSZ for Prospect Heights, and sign our online petition!
