Defend Bike Share in Ft. Greene & Clinton Hill

Defend Bike Share in Ft. Greene & Clinton Hill

Wednesday, April 24, 2013 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm


 

NOTE: THE LOCATION HAS CHANGED. THE NEW ADDRESS IS SACRED HEART CHURCH AT 30 CLERMONT STREET BETWEEN PARK AVENUE AND FLUSHING AVENUE.

Do you live in Ft. Greene or Clinton Hill? If so, RSVP to this urgent Town Hall Meeting to defend Citi Bike in your neighborhood.

Thanks to your vocal, outspoken support for the last two years -- Citi Bike, New York City’s new bike share program – is blooming on street corners in your neighborhood.  You have probably noticed new stations near your house or your favorite local businesses.

As exciting as this is, the sad truth is that Citi Bike is under attack in your neighborhood. Right now, a vocal minority of residents in your district are putting pressure on Council Member Letitia James to remove Citi Bike docking stations. These residents say the sidewalk outside or the parking spot near their front door isn’t public property.  They say, “It’s mine.” 

You know how much your neighborhood will benefit from a public bike share program like Citi Bike.  You know sidewalks and parking spaces are shared, public spaces, to benefit everyone.  Will you speak up? 

Attend the Public Meeting about Bike Share in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill and help us pack the room with vocal supporters of bike share in your neighborhood. Be sure to bring your neighbors who can’t wait for bike share to begin. We will send you some facts about Citi Bike and the extensive community process that made it possible if you RSVP.

Save the date and spread the word. Bike share in Ft. Greene & Clinton Hill depends on your participation on Wednesday night!
