Noticed this comment on Queens Central, which somehow has been transformed into a website dedicated mostly to the love of bikes and the hate of cars:
"At the TAQC meeting, people were encouraged to attend the August 13th hearing. For example, one attendee stated she was going to go and testify in favor of better pedestrian and bike safety on College Point Boulevard, and more uses for the CitiField parking lot on away days and during off season."
Yesterday, they posted again encouraging people to testify, under the title "Greased Lightning," which is how these folks like to think of themselves while pedaling around Queens.
The only problem is that the August 13th City Planning Commission hearing is about whether or not the City should rezone Willets Point for housing and forcibly remove existing businesses via eminent domain abuse. I would think that using your 3 minutes to opine about bike lanes on College Point Boulevard (which is actually not even in the area the city wants to rezone) and fun times in the parking lot of the new stadium will not go over too well and is just a bit insensitive. There is a time and a place, and this ain't it.
