CB3 Committee Takes Up Chatham Square, E. Broadway Noise, Horse Drawn Carriages

Must Read

The Transportation Committee of Community Board 3 has a full agenda tonight. Among the issues they'll address:

  • A request from residents and the Seward Park Co-op Board to put up signs on East Broadway limiting truck traffic to local deliveries. 
  • A request for a crosswalk in the middle of the block on Clinton, between Grand and East Broadway.
  • The controversial redesign of Chatham Square. In recent days, there have been reports that the project has been put on hold, but no confirmation from the city so far.
  • Extending a loading zone in front of the Bowery Hotel.
  • A request from New Yorkers for Clean, Livable and Safe Streets to ban horse-drawn carriages on city streets. 

The meeting will be held at 630pm at University Settlement, Speyer Hall. The address is 184 Eldridge Street, between Rivington and Delancey.

  1. With regard to the City and Chatham Square reconstruction delay: The City has confirmed through the Chinese media first , then through Sheldon Silver’s office that they are in fact delaying the reconstruction project.
    Contrary to what the DOT had been telling the community, task force, and community Board, the bids had never gone out back in January of 2009.
    That being the case, they continued to mislead everyone into thinking that there was a “deadline” that needed to coincide with several other major projects. Apparently when it comes to getting re-elected none of those other projects matter, since the Mayor knew that moving forward with Chatham Square would be “political suicide”.

  2. Thanks for the clarification, Jan. There’s a full length article posted on the blog now, detailing last night’s meeting. Please let us know if you learn anything new.
