As some of you may remember, North Star applied last year to the DOT's pilot SlowZone program, which would have addressed traffic safety concerns in the neighborhood. That application was rejected.
Today, however, we have some good news: Our continued communication with the DOT has led them to officially consider traffic calming measures along Morningside Ave. DOT Borough Commissioner Margaret Forgione is still evaluating Morningside Ave, and we will hear of her findings at the end of May 2013.  See below letter.
