LAST CHANCE TO HELP KEEP THE IMPACT ZONE ON FRANKLIN AVENUE

Impact is the NYPD program that deploys foot patrol to communities in the City where the need is the greatest.

For the past year Franklin Avenue has benefitted greatly by being an Impact Zone; it has made our neighborhood a much safer place to live and work

Crow Hill Community Association has worked very closely with the 77th Precinct to help insure that this program is a success. but we have learned that there is a strong possibility that we may lose this additional police protection.

We are asking EVERYONE to weigh in on this issue, NYPD needs to hear our voices or the Impact Zone will move to a more vocal community.

IF YOU HAVE NOT YET PARTICIPATED PLEASE VISIT http://crowhillcommunity.org/Impact.shtml TO ACT NOW!!!

EXTEND THE BIKE LANE ON FRANKLIN AVENUE

Alt

We have started a campaign to extend the existing Franklin Avenue bike lane that abruptly ends at Bergen Street. We are asking that Franklin between Atlantic and Eastern parkway consist of 1 traffic lane for cars and 1 bike lane, the parking lanes would remain as is.

There are paper petitions available to sign at various locations along Franklin Avenue (including Dutch Boy Burger, Had Associates, Franklin Park, and The Candy Rush) or you can send us an email as follows:

send to: chca@crowhillcommunity.org

subject line:
CREATE A DESIGNATED BIKE LANE ON FRANKLIN AVENUE

body of email:
We, the undersigned support Crow Hill Community Association’s proposal to convert the 2 existing traffic lanes on Franklin Avenue between Atlantic Avenue and Eastern Parkway to 1 lane of vehicular traffic and 1 designated bike lane. This would make traffic conditions on Franklin Avenue safer for pedestrians as well as create a secure thoroughfare for cyclists continuing on Franklin to Crow Hill/Eastern Parkway/Prospect Park from the designated Franklin Avenue bike lane that currently exists north of Atlantic Avenue.
