Hearing This Wednesday on Route 34 / Downtown Crossing Project

On Wednesday, September 28th at 6:30 p.m., the Community Development Committee of the New Haven Board of Aldermen is holding a public hearing at City Hall (165 Church St.) about a resolution calling for the Downtown Crossing project to honor the City’s commitment to “complete streets.” The resolution is sponsored by Alderman Justin Elicker and supported by Elm City Cycling, the New Haven Safe Streets Coalition, the Urban Design League, the Route 34 Coalition and a large number of other concerned citizens. We believe re-introducing a human scale to our urban landscape is a bioregional issue, and we are supporting efforts to ensure the Downtown Crossing project is done in a responsible way that is environment-friendly, bike-friendly, and climate-friendly. We hope you will come out to this important hearing, and feel free to tell us what you think about Downtown Crossing in the comments below.
