Int 1557-2019 *Corey D. Johnson  Five-year plans for city streets, sidewalks, and pedestrian spaces.IntroductionThis bill would require the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) to issue and implement a master plan for the use of streets, sidewalks, and pedestrian spaces every five years. The plan would prioritize and promote the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists, access to and the use of mass transit, the reduction of traffic congestion and emissions, and improved access to streets, sidewalks, public spaces, and mass transit for individuals with reduced mobility, hearing, or visual impairment. The bill would require DOT to achieve specific benchmarks for street redesigns, protected bus lanes, protected bicycle lanes, bicycle parking, pedestrian spaces, commercial loading zones, truck routes, and parking. The bill would also require DOT to conduct a public education campaign and post updates to the plan, the bicycle connective index for the previous year, and the status of the implementation of each benchmark identified in the plan on an annual basis.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available
