On December 1, the New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT) released the NYC Streets Plan! The five-year Plan is geared towards improving the safety, accessibility, and quality of the City’s streets for all New Yorkers.

This summer, the NYC Streets Plan team heard from roughly 14,000 New Yorkers from across all five boroughs on how to improve the places they walk, drive, bike, ride the bus, and spend time with friends. This outreach featured a series of ten virtual public workshops, the launch of a virtual engagement platform in ten languages, and telephone interviews to ensure we received input from residents in areas of the city that have been historically underrepresented. Feedback helped us craft recommendations and identify priorities for the next five years.

NYC DOT invites you to attend one of our upcoming virtual listening sessions to present the NYC Streets Plan and hear feedback from New Yorkers. This is a key component of the Streets Plan Public Education Campaign. Listening sessions will occur on Tuesday, December 14, from 1-3 PM and Thursday, December 16, from 6-8 PM.

All sessions are open to anyone who would like to attend. They will be conducted in English and Spanish with the opportunity to request live interpretation services in other languages.
