Action Alert: Tonight! Cherrywood Neighborhood Meeting for Cherrywood Road Bike Lanes
Posted Sep 07 2011 1:45pm
The League of Bicycling Voters is inviting all concerned cyclists and Cherrywood Neighborhood supporters of keeping the bike lanes on Cherrywood Road to tonight’s neighborhood association meeting to decide the association’s position on bike lanes. In response to the City’s original proposal to make bike lanes no parking areas and the partial removal of on street automobile parking to accommodate this, a group of Cherrywood neighbors have organized to not only block this proposal but also call for the removal of the current bike lanes. If they succeed, this would be the first sizable removable of bicycle infrastructure in Austin and a set back for creating safe space on our roads for all users.
Tonight’s meeting is an official Cherrywood Neighborhood Association meeting. The group is welcoming all cyclists who are interested to attend however only residents of the neighborhood will vote on the groups recommendation. This will carry great weight in how City staff move forward on bicycle facilities for this road. If you are a resident of the neighborhood, please be sure to show up tonight and vote for the City’s original proposal .
