In November, concerned parents in Sea Cliff kickstarted a petition written advocating for turning Littleworth Lane into a dead end near the side entrance of Sea Cliff Elementary School. The petition also calls for expanding the sidewalks around the intersection so school children can navigate the area without having to walk in the street.
On Monday, December 4th, parents and concerned residents addressed the Sea Cliff Village Board - for the first time ever as they don't usually allow public comment. The tremendous amount of petition signatures, phone calls and emails led the Village Board to recognize public comment.
Long Island Streets Board member Daniel Flanzig, who chairs Sea Cliff Village Traffic and Safety Committee, shared traffic calming recommendations for short-term solutions. Flanzig also educated the public with his lawyer cape on re: the dilemna with asking for a street closure - it's against state law.
