On April 24th, I held a Town Hall meeting with the Department of Transportation (DOT) regarding the Bike Sharing program. This Town Hall event gave the community a chance to share their concerns and have their questions answered. To help address location and siting concerns raised on April 24th, I recently met with the DOT to identify four bike share stations for potential alterations.
Each location will be looked at individually and evaluated; they are listed below:
1. On 21 St. James Place at the intersection of Lafayette Avenue-- move bike station 1 foot to clear the bushes.
2. On Clinton Avenue and Myrtle Avenue-- DOT is looking into various options (one might be to eliminate a bike platform).
3. 185 Hall Street-- DOT will monitor usage, and would like local community members to document any issues.
4. Adelphi Street-- DOT will revisit the site and take new measurements around the tree pits.
