Just a reminder - our COMET meeting will be held this Monday, 11/7 at 7:00 pm at St. Adalbert's Parish Center, lower level, 52-40 84th Street.
- Our precincts will give us an update about crime in our area, any unusual incidents, homeless shelters. Residents have called our attention to tents being erected on the LIE embankment as well as Maurice/Principe Park. There was also concern about a homeless encampment on Woodhaven/Queens Boulevard. We are interested in hearing how our precincts have been monitoring and handling this.
- We're curious to hear comments about the newly installed bike lanes and hear how they're affecting motorists and pedestrians. Obviously the bike lanes are here to stay, for now, but if anyone has a suggestion to make the area safer, i.e. signage, etc. we will pass it along to DOT.
- The city is installing LED lights in our area. Maurice Avenue between the service road and 65th Place was brought to our attention as being very dark since these lights were installed. DOT has informed us they'll do a study and get back to us. The city has a "minimum light requirement". If you know of any other dark areas, please let us know.
- Any new updates regarding the Elmhurst rezoning proposal.
Maspeth H.S. will be holding an open house this Monday from 5:00-7:00 pm. It's best to avoid this area during this time, if possible, since there have been traffic issues in the past.
