CB 14 has forwarded this issue to the organizations who manage the program (Project Sweep) responsible for the baskets on the Plaza. Sanitation is responsible for picking up from the corner but not from the Plaza. Please be advised that Project Sweep does not work on Sundays. They are on the Plaza from Monday-Saturday. Will forward to the appropriate organizations again. Will request additional street baskets near the bus stop. Thank you for your communication.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) has informed the Community Board office of their denial of this signage change request. CB14 received this statement from DOT: "This is in response to your July 14, 2014 e-mail regarding your request for a change to the existing "No Parking Anytime" signage to "No Standing Anytime" signage in front of 706 Westminster Road, Brooklyn. The Borough Engineering Office completed a field investigation involving land use and traffic conditions at the above location. As a result of their investigation, it was determined that the curb space at this location is regulated by an existing fire hydrant. Therefore, we do not contemplate any changes at this time."

Community Board 14 will be able to request another study at this location once 18 months have passed (February 2016.) Until then, please continue to call 311 to report any illegally parked cars, litter or other complaints resulting from cars parking at the location. This will assist DOT's decision if you choose to request another study of the issue in 18 months.

DOT provided Work Order # 3305332 for this job. Please post here or close this issue once the light has been repaired. Thank you.
