ACTION NEEDED: 20 is Plenty!
This is our most important issue in a long time -- we need your voice!
The shop closed, but Community Cycles is hard at work making biking safer. Our recent guest opinion in the Daily Camera laid out our support for street rebalancing during the COVID crisis (closing some streets to through traffic to allow for more walking and biking while maintaining social distancing) and implementing 20 is Plenty on residential streets immediately. The Transportation Advisory Board (TAB) supported streets rebalancing, but the City Council did not.
Now 20 is Plenty is coming before Council. TAB has shown strong support, but Transportation Division staff is waging a campaign to stop 20 is Plenty by stoking fears, promoting expensive and unwarranted studies during a time of budget cutting. They are using the COVID crisis as an excuse to kill a project they were already trying to kill before the crisis. We need your help to stop this.
TAKE ACTION NOW
On Tuesday, April 21, Council will decide if they will support TAB’s recommendation to proceed with implementation of the 20 is Plenty speed limit for residential streets. Please email Council asking to implement 20 is Plenty NOW and tell them to select Option 2. See our letter to TAB and Council for more info. Also send a letter to the editor.
