“There aren’t any.”

August 13, 2013

Bicycle Habitat’s Charlie McCorkel, who knows a thing or two about bicycle advocacy, calls out the mayoral candidates for one of their common complaints:

I have been very active in the community regarding bike lanes and bike share. The DOT and neighborhoods collaborated in Community Board meetings, and I cannot picture a longer and more vetted process. Where valid concerns were raised, I saw plans change. It was tedious but purposeful; each street alteration was always vetted through the Community Boards. If you hear one of the candidates raise the spectre of public review of already installed bike lanes, ask them to name one which was installed without Community Board support and approval. There aren’t any.
