Have you ever wanted to ask the Police Department a question or two about a neighborhood issue? If the answer is “yes,” you’ll want to add next week’s 7th Precinct Community Council meeting to your calendar. The council holds public meetings every month. There’s always some time reserved for questions from members of the community. But next Wednesday’s meeting will be a little bit different.
The event will be a bit more spontaneous, we’re told. The precinct’s top cops are hoping Lower East Side residents will come prepared with their questions, concerns and maybe even a few compliments. The focus will be on “quality of life” issues. Some examples: crowd-noise control at the neighborhood’s nightlife establishments, efforts to deal with the growing number of tour buses navigating the LES’s narrow streets and bike lane enforcement.
The meeting takes place Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. The 7th Precinct is located at the corner of Pitt Street and Delancey. As an extra bonus, there will be free food (sushi)!
