Councilman Jim Gennaro (D-Fresh Meadows), right, joined Queens Parks Commissioner Dorothy Lewandowski in front of a residence on Coolidge Avenue in Briarwood to check on the progress of the latest repairs made possible by Gennaro’s Trees and Sidewalks Program.

The councilman allocated $1.1 million of his discretionary capital construction funds to clear the backlog of constituents who have waited years to have their sidewalks repaired through the city’s program.

In all, the Trees and Sidewalks program will visit 437 addresses in Gennaro’s district and the work is now 94 percent completed.
