Our sidewalks are a mess. They are filled with scaffolding that stays in place too long, unused newspaper bins, proliferation of vendors and cracked pavement. Ken wants to evaluate sidewalk congestion in a comprehensive way. That requires looking at our Scaffolding Laws to ensure scaffolds are not up longer than is required. Ken strives to create a more livable streetscape, adding more benches, trees, lighting, bike parking, and flood mitigation devices like bioswales that have proven hugely successful on Columbus Avenue.
