Lh
SLreeLs, buslnesses, resldenLs and

ln fall 2010, uC1 lmplemenLed a new sLreeL redeslan alona Lhe easLern slde of Columbus

Lh
SLreeL and WesL 96
Lh
SLreeL. 1he sLreeL redeslan lncluded a
proLecLed blcvcle lane, a floaLlna parklna lane, pedesLrlan refuaes (small lslands lnsLalled aL
lnLersecLlons Lo reduce crosslna lenaLh), narrower Lrafflc lanes, lefL Lurn lanes, mlxlna lanes,
lnsLallaLlon of munl-meLers (a cenLrallzed parklna meLer svsLem), and a buffer zone. 1he
purpose of Lhe redeslan was Lo lncrease safeLv and moblllLv for cvcllsLs, pedesLrlans, and
vehlcular Lrafflc. 1he redeslan aarnered supporL from elecLed offlclals, CommunlLv 8oard 7,
resldenLs, and buslnesses.

As Lhe chanaes Lo Lhe sLreeL deslan became operaLlonal, some Columbus Avenue merchanLs
beaan Lo ralse concerns, such as a loss of cusLomer parklna space and uncerLalnLv abouL Lhe
new loadlna zones. AddlLlonallv, cerLaln deslan chanaes relevanL Lo Lhese concerns were noL

reduced Lhe amounL of space prevlouslv avallable for parklna.

ln an efforL Lo beLLer undersLand Lhe Columbus Avenue buslness communlLv's speclflc concerns
abouL Lhe uC1 sLreeL redeslan, Lhe Columbus Avenue Worklna Croup (CAWC) developed a
brlef, open-ended quesLlonnalre LhaL was dlsLrlbuLed Lo all buslnesses on Lhe easL slde of
Columbus Avenue beLween WesL 77
Lh

CAWC llmlLed dlsLrlbuLlon of Lhe quesLlonnalre Lo buslnesses on Lhe easL slde of Lhe sLreeL,
ad[acenL Lo Lhe newlv lnsLalled proLecLed blke lane. SlxLv flve (63) buslnesses were approached
and asked Lo parLlclpaLe ln Lhe sLudv. Cf Lhose buslnesses, LhlrLv slx (36) compleLed Lhe
quesLlonnalre - a 33 percenL response raLe. 1he quesLlonnalre was provlded Lo sLore owners
and manaaers, and CAWC members conducLed ln-person follow up over several davs.

1he responses Lo Lhe quesLlonnalre revealed LhaL Lhe Lop concerns of Columbus Avenue

lncreases ln parklna LlckeLs recelved bv vendors and cusLomers, lncreases ln Lrafflc and

of Lhe merchanLs lndlcaLed LhaL Lhe blke paLh lLself had neaaLlvelv lmpacLed Lhelr buslness.
lurLher, because Lhe quesLlonnalre focused on merchanLs' buslness operaLlons, Lhe feedback

Clven Lhe responses recelved from Lhe buslnesses, Lhe Columbus Avenue Worklna Croup
(CAWC) makes Lhe followlna recommendaLlons Lo Lhe new ?ork ClLv ueparLmenL of
1ransporLaLlon (uC1) and oLher relevanL clLv aaencles:

1. Invest|gate shorten|ng a|| m|x|ng and turn|ng |anes to |ncrease metered park|ng. Alona
Lhe LwenLv blocks lnvesLlaaLed, Lhere are nlne (9) blocks LhaL lnclude a mlxlna or Lurnlna
lane whlch capLures valuable space LhaL could be used for cusLomer parklna and/or
commerclal loadlna zones. lf Lhese lanes can be shorLened, wlLhln safeLv auldellnes, lL
would add a slanlflcanL amounL of space for poLenLlal parklna and/or loadlna opLlons for
Lhose nlne blocks.

2. Cons|der ba|anc|ng |oca| merchant needs for |oad|ng and park|ng zones by regu|at|ng
d|fferent use of curbs|de space dur|ng d|fferent t|mes of day, |n cooperat|on and

loadlna space and parklna avallablllLv as Lhelr maln lssues wlLh Lhe sLreeL redeslan.
Whlle Lhere was a clear consensus amona respondenLs LhaL new measures should be
Laken Lo address parklna and loadlna, no clear remedv was arLlculaLed bv respondenLs
LhaL could be conslsLenLlv applled across Columbus Avenue. 1hus, CAWC and uC1
should conducL addlLlonal sLudv and sLrucLure new weekdav reaulaLlons arounded ln
speclflc feedback from buslness owners Lo address Lhe lack of space for parklna and/or
loadlna and lssues recelvlna dellverles.

3. keprogram mun|-meters to not |ssue perm|ts dur|ng proh|b|ted hours. Munl-meLers
lssue parklna permlLs even when Lhe local parklna reaulaLlons are resLrlcLed Lo Lrucks

4. 5tream||ne s|gnage to reduce confus|on. 1he CAWC lnvesLlaaLlon revealed confllcLlna
and/or confuslna uC1 slanaae. varlous parklna reaulaLlon slans posLed on Lhe sldewalk

LreaLmenLs have been lnLroduced, such parklna slans have been relocaLed from Lhe curb
Lo Lhe floaLlna parklna lane.

5. Work w|th the New ¥ork C|ty I|re Department (IDN¥) to coord|nate street use by:

a. A||ow|ng park|ng |n front of certa|n f|re hydrants - Cn Columbus Avenue
beLween WesL 84

Lh
SLreeLs Lhere are Lwo (2) acLlve flre hvdranLs on one

11
b. Invest|gate us|ng the b|ke path for f|re truck access |nstead of nearby park|ng

wldLh ls sufflclenL Lo allow for clearance for llre and SanlLaLlon ueparLmenL

6. Work w|th the New ¥ork Þo||ce Department (N¥ÞD) to enhance enforcement of the
fo||ow|ng v|o|at|ons:

a. M|suse of the new |oad|ng zone - 8espondenLs clLed commerclal vehlcles uslna
loadlna zones as parklna spaces raLher Lhan for buslness, or vehlcles blocklna Lhe
loadlna areas wlLhouL anv acLlve loadlna or unloadlna.

b. I||ega| doub|e park|ng - 22 percenL of respondenLs lndlcaLed Lrafflc and
conaesLlon as an lssue wlLh Lhe new sLreeL redeslan. MulLlple members of Lhe
CAWC and merchanLs observed LhaL much of Lhe conaesLlon on Lhe sLreeL sLems
from double parked commerclal vehlcles. Accordlnalv, 1rafflc LnforcemenL should
be educaLed on Lhe new reaulaLlons concernlna parklna and loadlna ln Lhe sLudv
area and LlckeL vehlcles noL ln compllance wlLh Lhe law.

c. M|suse of c|ty-|ssued park|ng p|acards, part|cu|ar|y |n |oad|ng zones - MerchanLs
lndlcaLed LhaL vehlcles wlLh clLv-lssued parklna placards Lake up poLenLlal cusLomer
parklna spaces and loadlna areas, and have been parked ln oLher no-parklna or

buslness communlLv and Lhelr cusLomers, and should noL park ln areas noL deslaned
for vehlcle parklna.

7. Work w|th Department of 5an|tat|on and Department of Þarks and kecreat|on to
coord|nate:

a. 5now remova| on the b|ke |ane - 1he blke lane and pedesLrlan refuaes should be
cleared of snow ln a Llmelv fashlon Lo ensure LhaL boLh pedesLrlans and cvcllsLs can

8. Work w|th the N¥ÞD to enforce y|e|d|ng on b|ke path. 1he purpose of Lhls sLudv was Lo
ldenLlfv unlnLended effecLs of Lhe sLreeL redeslan on buslnesses alona Lhe corrldor.
Powever, merchanLs also noLed concerns abouL cvcllsL behavlor. Lleven percenL of Lhe

9. Conduct study of p|acard d|str|but|on and use. ln Lhe course of Lhe sLudv, Lhe CAWC
found LhaL vehlcles wlLh clLv-lssued parklna placards approprlaLed parklna spaces for
