As the discussion of bike lane build-outs continues to remain a focus for constituents; it is important to continue reminding council members of the benefits that protected bike lanes bring. Tomorrow, January 20, 2022 at 10:00 AM The City Council will hold a virtual meeting, and we want your support of the bike network to be heard. We want to ensure our voices are heard and all stakeholders have an opportunity to weigh in. We’re asking our supporters to share comments in advance and join the meeting if you’re available.
Amongst the many resolutions to be presented tomorrow, Resolution 43 particularly addresses the biking community:
