Like all of us , people who walk, you are probably frustrated by the lack of space for pedestrians. On both 8th and 9th Avenues, one often has to walk in the bike lane . Not good for cyclists or pedestrians.  At intersections we need to walk around buses and cars, right in the traffic.

Join us to tell  the City Council Transportation committee that more walking space and  protections must be included in any Transportation plan for the City .

It is not enough to have bike lanes and bus lanes, if the last portion of the trip – walking- cannot be preformed in a safe manner.

  1. As I get older (82) and have more trouble getting around (arthritis, both knees), it seems there are more people on less sidewalk space. The word sidewalk implies a place for walking, not walking sideways.
