The first one was rather poorly attended, considering that this is our chance to weigh in on decisions that will affect all New Yorkers, but perhaps especially those of us in Forest Hills. According to the DOT’s press release, the following will be discussed:

The first round of workshops, held in November 2007 in the five new study neighborhoods, looked at parking conditions and needs, and began a dialogue on potential parking management strategies. The second set of workshops, to be held in January and February 2008 in all seven areas, will discuss possible parking management strategies such as instituting residential parking permit programs, expanding the use of Muni-Meters, making changes to on-street parking fees, and using technology to track parking usage in the study neighborhoods and other border-zone neighborhoods.

Click here for my report on the first Forest Hills workshop back in November. Despite what others are saying, it’s our right and duty to be at these things and to let our opinions be part of the process. And despite what still others are saying, I am all for congestion pricing as a way to clean things up. That has to be the top priority, and not sticking it to the wealthy folks of Manhattan. Queens residents and pols just need to keep at it to make sure that the cost for making this happen is shared by everyone.
