Project Sweep: Supported Employment - In operation since 1990, Project Sweep is one of New York City’s oldest supported employment programs. Project Sweep workers clean commercial streets and clean offices for local businesses, merchant associations, and business improvement districts. Current sites include the Pitkin Avenue BID, Newkirk Plaza, Cortelyou Road Merchants Association, and East Brooklyn Industrial BID. Some Project Sweep workers do messenger work or are trained as clerical/administrative workers. Workers are supervised by Job Coaches, who meet regularly in one-on-one meetings with workers. As reported in the previous CB14 post, Project Sweep workers are working at Newkirk Plaza Mon-Sat and funding is currently being identified to include Sundays as well. Your statement about "no trash management on the busiest two days of the week" is inaccurate. Please file any additional complaints with 311. This will assist with the tracking of complaints on a city level. For more information about Project Sweep, please visit the following link - middev.org/projectsweep.

CB 14 continues to forward these comments and discuss the issues raised here with the organizations who manage the program (Project Sweep & FDC) responsible for the sweeping and basket maintenance on the Plaza. The Dept of 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, though a request has been placed with local elected officials to fund workers at the plaza on Sunday as well. Project Sweep workers are currently on the Plaza from Monday-Saturday, which is why you will note an increase in litter on Sundays. The MTA is not responsible for the litter pick-up at this location.

The new default speed limit of 25 MPH takes effect on November 7th, 2014. This new regulation changes the speed limit on all New York City streets which do not have a posted speed limit from 30 MPH to 25 MPH. For more information, please visit www.nyc.gov/html/visionzero/pdf/library/25-MPH-FAQ.pdf
