UPDATE, January 31, 2018: After the Transportation Committee meeting, Windsor Terrace Patch published articles about the two agenda items. The articles are "This $300K Self-Cleaning Toilet Could Be Coming To Prospect Park" and "Windsor Terrace Street Should Become 1-Way Truck Route, DOT Says."

Community Board 7 Transportation Committee Meeting
Monday, January 29th, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The 20th Street Truck Route Study: Final Preferred Alternative and an automated public toilet located at Prospect Park Southwest and 16th Street are the two agenda items for the next meeting of the Transportation Committee of Community Board 7. 

The self-sanitizing pay toilet measures 12 feet wide by 7 feet 6 inches deep. It would be accessible daily from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at a cost of $.25 per use. Twice a day, the facility would be serviced for inspection and system maintenance.

Advertising company CEMUSA won a contract with New York City in 2006 to install twenty of these automated public toilets. They installed the first one in 2008. So far, only four have been installed; the remainder are stored in a warehouse in Queens. JCDecaux purchased CEMUSA in late 2015.

All committee meetings (as well as all board meetings) are open to the public.

The meeting will be held on Monday, January 29th, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
