Good evening all,
My partner and I will be hosting our Build The Block meeting on Tuesday, January 26th, 2021 at 07:00PM via Zoom virtual call. We realize that, in the past, community members have expressed concerns with meeting in-person due to the current health crisis and believe a virtual meeting is the best approach to combat that.
We'll be discussing our most recent crime stats, patterns of activity, and other areas of concern from the community (drag racing, illegal street parties, abandoned vehicles, graffiti, etc.). A video camera & microphone is not required to attend-- participants are welcome to listen in and simply send chat messages if they feel more comfortable.

We wanted to provide an update. We expect work to start Wednesday morning, beginning at IS73 and going south towards Calamus on 70th Street.
Some relevant details:
Please pass along to family/friends
Register to get your vaccine
Starting Monday, NYS will begin scheduling vaccinations for the next group of people (Phase 1b):
-People age 75+
-Public transit workers
-Public safety workers
Sites will include pharmacies, drs' offices, Javits Center & more.
Even if you've already recovered from COVID, the CDC recommends that you get the vaccine.
The vaccine is the best way to protect yourself from COVID.
Update from DDC (Dept. of Design & Construction):
"Based on further conversations with the geotechnical engineer and DEP (Dept. of Environmental Protection) since our meeting Thursday night, our construction team decided to take a more proactive approach to try to prevent and identify further sinkholes. We plan to excavate 70th Street approximately 100 feet at a time and do additional probing of the soil, having the contractor address any voids they find.
Work may start as soon as Tuesday morning, with no parking signs going up tomorrow. We can provide a further update tomorrow once everything is confirmed. We will also encourage Pauline to go door-to-door to reach as many residents as possible along with her regular outreach.
We recognize that this work may be very impactful for the community, but feel it is important to address this issue now to put everyone at ease about the condition of the roadway."
Note from COMET: This will be an inconvenience for those of us who live on the block, but in the long run it's best to do the job right rather than have issues after the work is completed. Pauline's contact info is at the bottom of the notification(s) that you will be receiving.
