June 24th CB8M Mtg re Roosevelt Island Transportation Issues

CB8 Logo

Manhattan Community Board 8 has formally announced June 24th as the date for their combined Transportation / Roosevelt Island committee meeting that will focus on RI transportation issues. The agenda per the CB8 website is as follows:

1. A discussion and schedule of work through completion on the F Line.
2. A discussion of the major renovation of the Tram
3. Follow up discussion on the April 18, 2007 resolution regarding a discussion of the development of direct access from Roosevelt Island to the Queensboro Bridge
4. An update on the proposed East River Ferry Service.
5. Old Business
6. New Business

The meeting will take place at the NY Blood Center located 310 East 67th Street, (between First-Second)in the Auditorium.

As reported earlier representatives from both the MTA and the DOT have nbeen invited to attend. I would expect that RIOC President Stephen Shane would be in attendance as well as a number of our local elected officials and our elected RIOC Board Nominees.

I have been trading e-mails today with CB8 regarding the response I had understood, from Transportation Co-Chair Horn, that DOT had issued to CB8 regarding the April 2007 resolution but it appears that perhaps no formal written response was ever issued by the DOT to CB8. I was sent a copy of the actual April 2007 letter sent to DOT by CB8 regarding the resolution and will post it here later today.
