Congestion Pricing Debate Goes On

  • by

Congestion Toll Cameras on 60th St

The Congestion pricing debate goes on. A week ago, Gov Kathy Hochul announced an indefinite suspension of the start of tolling for vehicles entering the Congestion pricing zone in Manhattan below 60th Street. Since then, there have been rallies to support the plan calling on Hochul to reverse her decision.

Community Boards 1 -6 have penned a resolution calling on Gov Hochul to implement the plan and CB3 has added it to the June Full Board meeting. (open to the public for comment)

There are 2 chances for the public to attend and speak up on the issue.

Vote to Support CB 1-6 Coalition Support to Reverse Congestion Pricing Decision

Special meeting at June 25th Full Board meeting, after public session and preceding full board meeting

Community Boards 1-6 have discussed signing on to a letter to all parties involved with the MTA’s Congestion Pricing Plan, asking to reverse course on the Governor’s decision. Given the unprecedented nature of the abrupt policy shift, its potential cost to the MTA, and public trust in government, Community Board 3 will convene this special meeting after public session of its June Full Board meeting to discuss and vote on the contents of the letter which would ask the Governor to proceed with congestion pricing.

We encourage members of the public to attend the meeting and sign up to give public comment, and we ask for your support in reaching out to our communities to inform them of opportunity to comment on this important decision.

Please also note the Transportation, Public Safety, Sanitation, and Environment Committee will see this item at their meeting tomorrow. This decision to add this to the agenda after the agenda was posted, while also unprecedented, was made in order to ensure the broadest base of public comment, and exceptions like this are not to be granted again in the future.

All those wishing to attend, and comment must attend in person
