QUEENS — Residents from District 29 will get a chance to ask Mayor Bill de Blasio questions about local issues and concerns during a town hall in Rego Park scheduled for June 8.

The meeting, which will take place at the Lost Battalion Hall Recreation Center at 93-29 Queens Blvd. at 7 p.m., will be de Blasio’s first town hall in the neighborhood, officials said.

Co-sponsored by Community Board 6, the Forest Hills Asian Association, the Forest Hills Civic Association, the Queens Community House, the Queens Jewish Community Council and the 112th Precinct Community Council, the event is part of a series of similar meetings de Blasio has held across the city in recent months.

The mayor is visiting Rego Park as the city is planning to redesign Queens Boulevard in the area this year.

Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz, Borough President Melinda Katz, Assemblyman Andrew Hevesi and State Senator Toby Ann Stavisky will also be present at the meeting.

Residents from other neighborhoods located within the district, including Forest Hills, Kew Gardens and Richmond Hill, are invited as well, Koslowitz said.

Space at the town hall is limited, and those who want to attend are asked to RSVP by June 6 at 3 p.m. by emailing TownHallRSVP@cityhall.nyc.gov or calling (212) 748 0281.

Doors for the event will open at 6 p.m.
