Delays for the Flatbush Avenue Streetscape Project


Looks like the Flatbush Avenue Capital Streetscape project, first presented by the DOT in 2010 but not heard much of since then, has been delayed while waiting for approval from the Public Design Commission. (Sound familiar?) According to an email from the North Flatbush Avenue BID, the PDC first considered the project last April and requested minor changes. The proposal is expected to go back to the PDC before the end of this month. You can view the scope of work here; it includes major upgrades for all the Flatbush Avenue “triangles” at at 6th, 7th and 8th avenues, as well as improved crossings, more open space, more trees and plants, and more cafe tables and chairs. The next meeting on the matter with the DOT and the North Flatbush Avenue BID is scheduled for Wednesday June 6th from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
