The third and final Dallas Bike Plan meeting took place last night at City Hall and attendance was nearly full in the chamber hall as cyclists from throughout the region came out to show support and offer last recommendations for the plan. Angela Hunt addressed the crowd and talked about how the new plan will include nearly 800 miles of on-street bike lanes which will help vault Dallas to the ranks of some of the nation’s highest rated cycling cities. Andy Clark, president of the League of American Bicyclists, flew in from Washington D.C. to deliver the keynote speech and talked about Dallas being a priority for him and the LAB since the city is commonally thought of as “car-only”. Andy also gave a nod to Richardson Bike Mart, and their efforts to promote the plan. Finally, Max Kalhammer introduced Toole consultant and Seattle former bike planner, Peter Lagerwey, who gave the final presentation on the plan and its outline for implementation. Lagerwey, and Clark were adamant in stating that it is now up to the community to show up to meeting, and push their city represetatives to make the plan come to life. This meeting was the last session open for public input. The final plan will be published in March and a council meeting will be set in April to officially adopt the plan.
We have a bike & scooter corral in Bishop Arts!!! Ribbon Cutting March 14th 3:15pm as part of the #paletasybicicletas ride from Lake Cliff Park. The entire family can now park their wheels together by the @bishop_street_market_ mural at 7th & Bishop. It took 5 years of planning and following up with multiple changes in City Staff and 2 (awesome) Councilmen @chadwestdallas & Scott Griggs - and we finally got it! We hear they’re going in all over the city now too. The more we make room for bikes and scooters (parking, riding, in the street right of way, on trails) the more useful they can be in de-carbon ozone our transportation system and making safer neighborhoods. . . #bikeparking #bicycles #bikefriendly #bishopartsdistrict #bishoparts #tryparkingit #citizenoftheworld
