Park Slope community leaders and elected officials will meet tonight to discuss the state of Fourth Avenue, a still largely industrial stretch of road in the heavily-gentrified neighborhood.

Fourth Avenue residents said in a recent survey that the streetscape is unwelcoming and that the increasing number of new residential towers rising on the avenue aren’t helping. The Park Slope Civic Council will discuss the survey results tonight at 336 3rd Street, where participants will also hear from City Council members Brad Lander and Stephen Levin on their ideas for the avenue’s transformation.

S.J. Avery, a member of the Park Slope Civic Council’s Forth on Fourth committee, told DNAinfo that now was the time to get improvement projects off the ground, as he expected the new mayoral administration to usher in progressive city planning policies.

The survey showed that residents are concerned about the avenue’s lack of trees, pedestrian safety and a lack of affordable housing at the new residential buildings, according to the website. [DNAinfo]Hiten Samtani
