De Blasio Holding Town Hall Meeting in Jackson Heights Wednesday, Attendees Must RSVP

March 26, 2018 By Tara Law

Mayor Bill de Blasio is holding a town hall meeting in Jackson Heights Wednesday night and will be taking questions from the public.

The mayor, who will be joined by Councilmember Daniel Dromm and other elected officials, is hosting the meeting that is titled “Working for Council District 25” at I.S. 145 Joseph Pulitzer 33-34 80th St. at 6:30 p.m.

Representatives from several city agencies, including the Department of Transportation, will be at the meeting.

There are no set issues being discussed during the town hall — instead, community members are permitted to ask questions about issues of their choice.

The Department of Transportation’s controversial Clear Curbs initiative, which prohibits deliveries and standing on Roosevelt Avenue during rush hour, is expected to be discussed at the town hall.

The event is being co-sponsored by Community Board 3, which represents East Elmhurst, Jackson Heights and North Corona.

Doors open at the event at 5:30 p.m. and close at 7 p.m.

People looking to attend must RSVP and are required to e-mail, or call 212-788-4282.

Space is limited, and an RSVP is required by 5 p.m. today. For further information, click here.

I hope the mayor have some answers for that East Elmhurst community, why all the hotels are turning into homeless shelter and making our neighborhood more risky for everyone of us. I never had to watch my back after parking my car at night while walking home now I am literally afraid to walk home.
