The inferred request for additional service on Sunday will be forwarded to FDC. Requests for additional baskets at locations on Foster will be reviewed with the Department of Sanitation.

We've requested an update on this issue. It'll be posted upon receiving. Thank you.

From DOT: "If there is an on-going problem of vehicles speeding in your neighborhood, please contact the local precinct." NYPD 70th Precinct can be contacted at 718-851-5511 or by calling 9-1-1.

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.

Please call the Community Board 14 District Office at 718-859-6357 with 311 Service Request Numbers for noise complaints you have filed regarding this location, email them to info@cb14brooklyn.com or post them here. We will follow up on complaints with the 70th Precinct. Thank you.

Community Board 14 received this response today from the Department of Transportation regarding the request for a reduced speed limit on Campus Road.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From DOT: "We apologize for the delay in responding to your April 11, 2014 e-mail regarding your request for a reduced speed limit on Campus Road between East 21st and East 23rd Streets, Brooklyn. Governor Cuomo recently signed legislation that will reduce the speed limit on most city streets to 25 miles per hour. Passage of this legislation was a major component of Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero plan, a commitment to improve street safety in every neighborhood and in every borough – with expanded enforcement, new street designs and configurations, public education communications and a legislative agenda to increase penalties for dangerous drivers. The 25 mph legislation takes effect in mid-November. The Vision Zero Action Plan is available on the nyc.gov web site at www.nyc.gov/VisionZero. The NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) and the New York City Police Department (NYPD) are collaborating in efforts to accomplish the goals identified in Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero plan. If speeding persists once this bill passes, police officers and traffic enforcement agents should issue summonses to any vehicles found to be in violation of traffic regulations. If there is an on-going problem of vehicles speeding in your neighborhood, please contact the local precinct. Contact information is available on the NYPD web site at http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/html/ home/contact_information.shtml. Thank you for your interest in traffic safety in New York City."

Please be advised that in such cases you should call 311 to report. Please provide the time violators walk their dogs, where they reside (if this info is available), keeping in mind that a special division of Sanitation Enforcement starts inspections after 7 am. We could also email you a poster ("Curb Your Dog") to the address you provide. Thank you.

Thank you for contacting Community Board. Your request has been submitted to the NYC DOT.

Please call 3-1-1 to file this complaint. Post the 311 Service Request Number here and we will follow up with the appropriate agency. Thank you.

DOT does not have access to information posted here. Please file complaints regarding illegally parked cars by calling 311. DOT does have access to citywide 311 data. Thank you.

The Department of Transportation has indicated that they will provide results to this request by mid-October 2014. We will post the results as soon as they are received. Thank you.

The request to install "No Standing" sign has been submitted to DOT. We'll keep you updated on a status of it. Thank you.

Thank you for contacting Community Board 14. Please call 311 to report an obstruction of a fire hydrant at the time it takes place.

As far as parking concern, yellow and green cabs, as well as car service vehicles, are allowed to be parked on streets with no restrictions.
