CB6 Looks back at 2008 197-a Plan

CB6’s Community Planning Fellow, Kieran Micka-Maloy, recently completed a review of CB6’s 197-a Plan that was adopted by the City Council in 2008. A 197-a plan lays out recommendations that are meant to guide the development of a district. A lot has changed in Manhattan Community District 6 in the intervening 14 years, and as we enter this third year of the pandemic, it’s a good time to look back at the plan for our community to see what has been accomplished and what work is still left to be done. Read the report here.

CB6 Working towards Roomier Sidewalks on 3rd Ave

The CB6 Transportation Committee announced a project to reimagine a congested segment of 3rd Avenue (from 26th Street to 32nd Street) to increase the amount of sidewalk space available to pedestrians and outdoor dining alike. That way, there isn’t so much competition for tight space. CB6 commissioned Sam Schwartz Engineering to draft a concept plan for widening the sidewalks on this portion of 3rd Avenue, using a CB6 resolution as a guide. You can find Sam Schwartz Engineering’s concepts for the area here. If you live in and around the area, we’d love to hear your feedback on the project! Simply email us your thoughts at info@cbsix.org.
