590Re: Shower at workplace
- Feb 20, 2000Corey,
I'm in a similar situation. I run a small one-man cargo bicycle courier
service here in Chapel Hill / Carrboro, NC, and I'm planning on renting
some office space in a planned business incubator (cheap rent, shared
facilities, business support) in the fall. The building is not built yet
and I requested a shower in one of the bathrooms and got some initial
positive feedback only to be told this last week that it couldn't happen.
It sure would have helped me through these Carolina summers. And I know
others would appreciate it as well. I'm not sure how much to push it at
this point. I just wish it was standard practice.
I am on a newly formed Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board for the town
and we are starting to develop our list of criteria for the various
development plans we will be reviewing. I think showers in larger
employment centers will be part of our recommendations. Is there any
similar group in your town? This is the only thought I now have on how to
get this kind of thing done. My other thought for your situation is to
try to get some other employees on board with you, even if they won't be
bike commuters. Power in numbers kind of thing. . .
Good luck, and let me know if you get any good advice.
