Hooray! Bike Lanes Approved – 2nd Street Tabled for Community Input
|June 26, 2009||Posted by jamie under Activism, Transportation & Ped Safety||
I’m happy as hell to share that the Bike Plan was approved – and the MTA has decided, based upon neighbors showing up and speaking up at today’s meeting, to meet with us and to work out a design for 2nd Street that adds the bike lanes AND hopefully minimizes traffic congestion and associated issues with traffic congestion.
Thank you so much to Dan, Jeff, Katy, Katherine, Adam, Les, Phil, Robyn, and others – especially our last neighbor who wrapped up public comment very succinctly – who conveyed our disappointment that we weren’t involved, our desire to be involved, and our alternative idea that we believe is a win-win for 2nd Street bicyclists, pedestrians, and MUNI.
Now, let’s get our LGBT Pride celebration on and come together as a community!
