CCRA votes not
to take a position on the 22nd Street Protected Bike Lane Project as
presented by oTIS at the March 18, 2019 Open House at Greenfield
This decision was predicated on three things:
- the understanding that CCRA's support or lack thereof would not influence the City's decision to move forward with the project;
- our lack of expertise to fully evaluate the pros and cons of the proposal.
- Inconclusive survey data
thanks all those who attended the open house with oTIS regarding
changes planned for 22nd St and its bike lane and the almost 100 people
who responded to our online surveys about the bike lane. However,
because the participant pool did not clearly represent all who live on
or near 22nd St and/or who walk, drive, or bike (or would like to bike)
in the proximate area, we were unable to draw reliably valid
conclusions. This uncertainty, coupled with the reasons above, resulted in the board's decision to take no position, for or against, the plans regarding the 22nd St bike lane.
the survey results and all comments were forwarded to oTIS, and it is
our expectation that, as the city continues to develop and complete the
design work, CCRA's Streets Committee will remain in the loop and
engaged in the process. We will keep CCRA's membership informed as best
we can before the badly needed repaving of 22nd St. begins in the fall
or, more likely, next spring.
