Bike Parking

City council will take up bike parking as a consent item on tonight's agenda. Looking over the agenda, the new ordinance appears, as I read it, requires businesses to provide bicycle parking, which is just wrong.  If the city wants to encourage bike usage in the city, the city should provide bike parking, removing motor vehicle parking to do so.

Did speak with acting mayor Don Monty about this and the new regulations will only apply to new construction. Already existing businesses such as Mary Lou's and Jimmy John's will not be required to provide parking spaces but whatever goes in at the old American Tap location will. Either provide bike parking on their property or pay for a bike rack for the city to install elsewhere.
