    It’s not clear how this proposal differs from previous set ups or how this would change the process for applicants and citizens. Transparency, communication, and access to timely responses are most appreciated with any change and proposal.

    There needs to be additional rules around sound systems and garbage during Open Streets events. On W. 116th St. in Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Manhattan, the music coming from the speakers is deafening. There are people all over the streets, and you can barely walk through. Either allow people on the street or on the sidewalk but not both. Many places already have Open Restaurant sheds and Open Streets is just another way for them to take over all of the street. It’s terrible for those with a disability to pass through. Then don’t fine building owners for rat problems when the City has allowed garbage all over the streets.
