The Our Town article, MTS Decision Referred to Mayor (4/20/15) misses important information regarding our position.
Of the 8 original alternative ramp locations being considered, the remaining two options — E. 91st Street and E. 92nd street — are suboptimal comparatively.
However, if the ramp moves to 92nd street, then more will be needed to protect the health and safety of the surrounding residents, including those in public housing residing next door, such as:
1) Stringent air quality control measures
2) Noise and pollution control measures
3) Traffic safety control measures
P2P continues to believe that a MTS should not be built in any residential area.
However, if the city moves ahead with the construction, then we will continue to fight for these protections and more.
