Respecting the past, Building the future

Speed Bumps Approved

As many may be aware, OANA has been advocating for speed bumps on 18th st for many years.
During our February meeting, we invited the NYC DOT’s Samantha Dolgoff to participate. Because of the tremendous participation by neighbors requesting that these speed bumps be installed, and the support of CB1 and Councilman Constantinides, we have been successful.

Read the letter from DOT here to the Councilman advising that installation will proceed this year.
Civic participation can lead to results! Seniors and children are in your debt! While we all need patience when dealing with the bureaucracy, persistence can win the day! To all those who worked hard to make this a reality, (from OANA members, to the staffs at CB1 and Councilman Constantinides) we thank you for making our streets a little bit safer!
