City Cleanup Corps to Take Over Running Fort Greene Open Streets

Street Plans provided pro bono support for the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill Open Streets Coalition in undertaking user counts along three open streets: S. Portland, Hall St, and Willoughby Ave.

Led by local resident and Principal, Mike Lydon, the Coalition found an overwhelming majority of users were not driving and that the streets are working as intended, as linear public spaces serving the needs of residents. 

Based on their success, S. Portland and Willoughby Ave are some of the first streets in the citywide program to be taken over by the City CleanUp Corps.
