BPCA to address BatteryPark.TV’s concerns over park neglect

This post has been read 1347 times!

The Battery Park City Authority will be addressing our previous reporting of the parks falling into disrepair. Tomorrow, at the CB1 meeting, the topics will be:

7/2     Battery Park City Committee – 6:00 PM
           Location:  Battery Park City Library, 175 North End Avenue

  1. Ferry balancing – Discussion with NY Waterways
  2. Post Sandy Repairs – Update by Battery Park City Authority
  3. Traffic Calming/Pedestrian Enhancements Working Group – Update

The reason that the various projects have been neglected for so long, uncharacteristically by the Parks Conservancy, is that the BPCA eliminated key staff who normally would have rapidly made the repairs in-house. Now, the BPCA is preferring to hire outside contractors, with the RFP process and delays.
