The Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership is making a push to reach its goal of 1,000 signatures for its petition to impliment safety precautions along Park Avenue.
The Park Avenue Safety Plan includes "proposals to promote pedestrian safety and calm traffic on Park Avenue between Navy and Steuben Streets in the Wallabout area of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill," the plan notes.
"We’ve received over 500 signatures on the paper version of our petition," MARP's website says. "Combined with the [around] 400 online signatures, we are very close to our goal of 1000! Help us get there during the holiday season. Sign the online petition and/or share it with friends."
MARP noted that if the petition reaches its signature goal, it would help convince the city to implement the safety proposals outlined in the plan.
The plan asks for retimed traffic lights, more street trees, bus shelters, daylighting at select intersections, Repaving underneath the Brooklyn Queens Expressway and median parking to calm traffic and add on-street parking.
Various safety measures at crossings under the BQE would also be added under the plan, as well as the removal of highway-like design at Navy and Steuben streets and a traffic light and crosswalk on the NYCHA/Commodore Barry superblocks.
