Senator Smith Calls For Rockaway Transportation Study

Senator Malcolm A. Smith of Queens met with a New York Metropolitan Transportation Council (MTC) rep to discuss a transportation study of the Rockaways.

“Because of the rapid growth and continued commercial and residential development occurring in the Rockaway, it is imperative that we put into place an effective long term plan that will address the needs of the peninsula,” Smith said.

Discussion centered around a planning effort similar to the one the MTC instituted in Southern Brooklyn, where the community works hand in hand with transportation agencies to develop services, according to Smith.

“We must explore long term planning and oversight to help ensure that our transportation services are adequate, and that current and future residents of the Rockaways will not be left under served,” Smith said.
