“As Downtown Brooklyn and its demographics change, so do its parking needs,” said Markowitz. “My recommendations take into account the diverse concerns of stakeholders in Downtown Brooklyn, from developers and residents to cyclists and car owners. And despite erroneous claims from critics that my office doesn’t advocate enough for the bicycle community, here is a case where I used my ULURP [Uniform Land Use Review Procedure] authority to call for more parking for bikes in parts of the special Downtown Brooklyn District.”
So in case that isn’t clear, Marty really wants you to know that he’s a supporter of bikes. A lot. Which is great! He’ll get no arguments from us on this one.
