Over the past six months, the Initiative has worked closely with our mapping partner, BFJ Planning, to a create a map of the district. BFJ Planning painstakingly mapped all of the public sidewalk space, building entrances, sidewalk fixtures/furniture, subway grates and many other sidewalk features. Once the district map was completed, BFJ Planning then mapped the location based rules applicable to general vendors and food vendors to show where vending is and is not allowed in our district. The result is the Curb Vending Regulation Map.
In conjunction with the Curb Vending Regulation Map, the Initiative developed a Curb Vending Mapping Methodology document that outlines the location based laws that were mapped and how those laws were translated onto the map.
In developing the Curb Vending maps, the Initiative’s Program Services Committee worked closely with a number of partners. The Initiative thanks those at the 1st Precinct, 5th Precinct, Midtown South’s Peddler Unit and Community Board 2 for their input and guidance on this project.
While the Initiative and its partners have worked hard to ensure the Map’s accuracy, the Initiative is sharing them with the public for comment.
The Initiative welcomes your feedback in order to ensure the Maps are accurate and most effective, comments may be shared with Katie Garrett, Outreach Coordinator, as follows:
