At this month’s Pedestrian and Bicyclist Advisory Committee meeting we learned that the proposed protected bike way along N st., part of the downtown master plan project, faces opposition. There is still general acceptance for the protected bike way from the Mayor’s office, the Downtown Business Association, and the public as a whole. But those opposing the bike way are being the greater squeaky wheel. So let’s squeak back!
On May 30 there will be a public hearing for the Planning Commission on the update to the Downtown Master Plan. This will cover the protected bike way topic. 1:00 PM in Room 112 in the City County Building.
On June 18 is the scheduled hearing for the City Council on the update to the Downtown Master Plan. This will also cover the protected bike way topic.
We STRONGLY urge you to attend both these meetings with us. Together we will emphasize to the Planning Commission and the City Council how important it is to have a strong and vibrant downtown that is accessible to all in our great community.
– If unable to attend these meetings, please write your City Council representative.
