Wider streets create longer crossing distances and faster speeds. Wider streets divide our neighborhoods. As elected policy-makers, we need to be clear in our policy priorities, and consistent in our delivery of public projects. Recently, the Fire Department and the Department of Public Works attempted to widen the street clearance at the new development at Hunters Point. After a public hearing and public pushback, the departments have been working towards a compromise that will ensure both pedestrian safety and fire safety. I'm happy to hear a compromise is within reach.
