Its of critical importance that all residents who live adjacent to New York Avenue come out to give their input on the Streetscape and trail plan. This plan needs to be resident driven and not developer driven and we must be sure to hold DDOT accountable to not only planting trees but addressing the timing of lights, safe access by existing residents, multi-modal infrastructure, and connectivity not only to new developments but to the adjacent existing communities. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by, New York Ave belongs to all of us and its important that all of our voices are heard, considered and included. The announcement is below.
From the DDOT Website:
