In April 2006, CHEKPEDS submitted to the New York Metropolitan Transportation Council a request for funding that emphasized the current issues and the long list of improvements the Communiyt Board 4 had requested over the years.
With the support of our elected officials, NYCDOT accepted to be the sponsor of the study. DOT converted our request for funding into a Program description that was officially included in December 2006 in the region’s budget submission to the federal governement for the Unified Work Program. In April 2007, the federal funds were approved and the study started in July 2007.
The study is slated to last two years , with short term solutions identified mid 2008.
The federal guideline makes the funding of these projects contingent on an extensive community participation in the process.
