FOLLOW UP: December Open House

The December Access RI Open House was a huge success. Over thirty Roosevelt Island residents came out to meet the studio group and share their concerns. Some of the following issues and concerns are echoed from our October townhall meeting and our community survey, which illustrates the pressing concerns of Roosevelt Island residents. The issues and concerns are listed in no particular order.

- F-train service inadequate
- Roosevelt Island roads & sidewalks in poor condition for disabled residents
- Struggling and depressed Main Street retail
- Island emergency evacuation
- Governance and accountability of RIOC
- MTA Subway and Red Bus disability access

The Access RI studio team will continue to compile issues and concerns of Roosevelt Island residents while we develop solutions for the most frequently occurring issues and problems. More to come!
