All eyes continue to be on Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer for his stance on the city’s controversial proposal to add protected bicycle lanes and remove 120 parking spaces as part of its redesign of Skillman and 43rd Avenues.
Van Bramer, who said he would take a position on the plan after Community Board 2 took its vote, has yet to announce his thoughts. The community board voted against the plan on June 7 by a vote of 27 to 8.
The Council Member said this afternoon, however, that he expects to state his position next week. He said this week has been “incredibly busy,” as he’s been working on passing the city’s budget.
