With the Council committee set to vote soon, please send emails to the pertinent members to send emails asking them to vote No on Flushing Commons. Common points could include:
- FC alone will increase traffic 25%, and this is based on outdated DOT plans to relieve traffic, which even if they had implemented, would still leave 14 intersections with 'unmitigated' conditions.
-Flushing has 3rd busiest intersection in NYC = horrendous traffic conditions for cars, buses, trucks, and Especially people
-7 line, buses are already packed
-Flushing Commons Draft EIS uses NYCDOT calculations on converting Main & Union Sts into contraband one-way streets which is NOT HAPPENING anymore - any traffic analysis in the report is now WRONG.
-Flushing is successful because it is made up of mainly small affordable 'local' stores, not chain or upscale stores.
-If City Council can defeat Bloomberg's conversion of Kingsbridge Armory, then it can defeat another one of his give-public-land-to-private-developers projects.
E-mail the members of the Zoning Subcommittee and eventually the full City Council.
