SlowZone Rejection

In March of 2012, North Star Neighborhood Association submitted a "Slow Zone" application to the NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) to slow traffic in our neighborhood especially on Morningside Avenue. We had broad community interest in the application as demonstrated by the eighteen letters of support from block associations and various community organizations. Unfortunately, DOT did not select our neighborhood (see above attached letter). That doesn't mean our advocacy is done, however. We plan to invite DOT to an upcoming public meeting to discuss how they can address our concerns.
