September 20, 2:30 pm – 6:30 pm
The Change You Want To See is hosting the Open Planning Project’s FixCity Bike Rack Hunt on Sunday, September 20th from 2:30pm – 6:30pm. The event is part of the 2009 city-wide Conflux Festival.
Want more bike parking in Williamsburg and Greenpoint? FixCity.org is an online platform that communities can use to map desired bike rack locations. The site is a partnership between the Open Planning Project, the Transportation Alternatives Brooklyn Committee, and the Livable Streets Initiative with NAG (Neighbors Allied for Good Growth) as the community partner for the first phase of the site, focused on Brooklyn Community District 1, Greenpoint and Williamsburg. The goal is for CB1 to submit 300 potential locations to the Department Of Transportation so they can order and place the new bike racks in bulk.
Arrive prepared to scour the streets for possible new bike rack locations and BRING A CAMERA or phone with camera capabilities. There will be some extras on hand if you don’t have one.
