Save the Dates: 2/24 and 4/13

We're planning two block association meetings this spring to get updates on a number of issues that are affecting our neighborhood. We'll meet on February 24 and April 13 (both Mondays) from 7 pm to 8 pm. As usual we'll be in the social room of 340 West 55th Street.

Meetings start promptly at 7 pm end at 8 pm but feel free to stay a little longer to continue talking with your neighbors. Agenda includes next steps regarding the City's building proposal for West 54th and Ninth (current MTA parking lot); update on bike lanes on West 55th; and information about a proposed protected bus lane on Ninth Avenue for the M11. 

CB 4 Application Deadline: 2/14

Manhattan’s 12 community boards are local organizations each composed of 50 volunteer members serving staggered two-year terms.  Community boards are tasked with being the independent and representative voices of their communities—the most grass-roots form of local government. The boards are pivotal in shaping their communities and work to enhance and preserve the character of the city’s many unique neighborhoods.
 
The online application can be found here: manhattanbp.nyc.gov/cbapplication (case sensitive). The deadline has been extended to 5pm on February 14, 2020.
Tree Lights Coming Down Feb. 24 
Have you noticed that the days are getting longer? That's our cue that it's time for the tree lights to come down (The City does not allow us to leave them up all year.) SavATree is set to take down the lights on Monday, February 24. So take a moment over the next two weeks to savor the glow and get ready for spring to start brightening our skies.
