Tomorrow the Department of Transportation will visit Community Board Two’s Transportation Committee to discuss the future of Fowler Square, which is slated become a permanent fixture in the neighborhood. The DOT installed the pedestrian plaza in Fort Greene this summer using temporary materials. They promised to study the traffic and pedestrian flow with the green street in place and come back to the community board with their findings this winter. Because of some neighborhood resistance against the closing of South Elliott Place, they are still looking for community feedback after the fact. (Last month Streetsblog reported that many surrounding businesses supported the plaza there.) Have any Fort Greene residents noticed negative impacts to the block closing? If you’re interested in attending, the meeting is at St. Francis College at 180 Remsen Street in the first floor board room at 6 pm.
