StreetsPoll December 7, 2016

Streetsblog's Brad Aaron reported yesterday that Manhattan Community Board 12 still hasn't taken action on a plan for Upper Manhattan bike lanes that was first proposed back in February of 2008. Wrote Aaron:

Eight years of talking about design upgrades for Dyckman Street was not enough for Manhattan Community Board 12, which voted to table part of a DOT plan to add bike lanes to the major Inwood cross street at a transportation committee meeting last night.

Does that seem reasonable to you?

How long do you think it should take for Community Boards to endorse new safe- and complete-streets projects?

Eternity. Sisyphus hasn't finished striping that bike lane through CB Underworld yet, has he?
Why should Community Board approval be needed for life-saving infrastructure projects?
Eight years seems a little rushed, tbh.
