District 32 Agenda: 

The People's Agenda

 

Green Tomorrow

  • Severino for City Council will support the expansion of the late-night 99 services to Queens District 32, starting with Woodhaven Blvd. Already, Manhattan, Bronx, and Brooklyn have the M99, B99, BX99 late-night service 1 am to 5 am.

  • Severino for City Council will support the expansion of additional city ferry services from Rockaway to a Canarsie pier to Brooklyn Army Terminal/Pier 11. 

  • Severino for City Council will support more programs like Citi Bike to be accessible to Jacob Riis Park, Rockaway Beach boardwalk, and Spring Creek Park. 

  • Severino for City Council will call for greater service and track repairs for the A-Line to combat unreliable service and support working-class families.

  • Severino for City Council will support a 1.85 mile Queensway plan for the creation of a greenway along the deactivated Rockaway Beach branch. This new addition will span from 102th Street and Forest Park along the old track line to Linden Blvd. This green space with bike lanes will serve the district as an eco-friendly option for exercise, schools, and the community. More than ever, we need to realize the health needs of our community and recognize unnecessary expenses we can redirect to improving our subways and bus lines to the Rockaways without ignoring the need for clean air.

  • Severino for City Council will support initiatives to implement low-carbon concrete in city projects and roadways and assist with union and local contractors.

  • Severino for City Council will work with the Office of Emergency Management to locate and secure additional locations in the Rockaway Peninsula to serve as evacuation centers. As flooding worsens, District 32 will need to build protective flood barriers and raised city streets to aid flood preventative measures and evacuation routes. 

  • Severino for City Council will advocate to pass Intro 0382-2018, calling for the Office of Emergency Management to send out notifications to encourage residents in high-risk areas to invest in flood insurance based on the information from the FEMA flood maps.

  • Severino for City Council will support the plastic bag ban near city beaches or parkland, with an amendment to allow a grace period and resources for small businesses to find alternatives that are sufficient. 

  • Severino for City Council will work with the Parks Department to support building community gardens in our community, specifically using empty lots to provide healthier eating options, beautification, and fresh air spaces. 

  • Severino for City Council will fight to ban new fossil fuel power plant buildings in the city. We need to support green energy initiatives, not further pollute and endanger our population, especially those with high asthma rates.

  • Severino for the City Council will support the greater accessibility of grants for the creation of green energy jobs such as installing solar panels.

  • Severino for City Council will support the creation of a governing body within the New York City Parks Department to manage improper dumping and abandonment of vessels along Jamaica Bay.
