The residents of Peacock Lane appreciate the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association’s dedication to sustainability and better communities.
We recognize that our tradition of holiday lights has a massive footprint and impact on all of our neighbors. A few years ago, with the support of SNA, we tried a Car-Free night and it was a huge success. Some board members at SNA encouraged us to add more Car-Free nights and that is something we are anxious to do.
We have proposed two Car-Free evenings this year, December 15th and 16th. In order to close the street, we must apply for a “community event” through the city, which then requires us to have special insurance to cover the event. The insurance company representing SEUL would like Peacock Lane to have the support and partnership of our greater neighborhood association.
The special meeting will occur at 6 p.m. Wednesday, November 23 in the lobby of the Theater Theatre building at the corner of 35th and Belmont.
One thought on “Notice of Special SNA Meeting Re: Peacock Lane”
Wouldn’t it be bold for all nights to be car-free. All those cars and the exhaust can’t be good to breath in for the residents of Peacock Lane or the visitors and if the street was closed to traffic on all nights, everyone would be able to enjoy the lights, the hot cocoa, their neighbors and the children all that much more.
As for parking, perhaps Wallgreens could make their massing parking lot available. There is already a traffic jam on Belmont for Peacock Lane so a traffic jam for the parking lot may or may not be worse.
