Maspeth Town Hall serves countless children, families, and local residents every day, but the center is located on the narrow, two-way 72nd Street off of bustling Grand Avenue, and frequently sees speeding cars.
Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley called on the Department of Transportation (DOT) to install safety upgrades.
“Maspeth Town Hall operates after school programs for local schools, hosts nighttime meetings and provides services to people of all ages throughout the community,” Crowley said. “It’s important we do all we can to ensure this is a safe space, both inside and outside, on the street.”
DOT Queens Borough Commissioner Nicole Garcia said the installation date is dependent on when “resources become available.”
