41951st and Winnebago Neighborhood Mtg
- Jul 6, 2005To all.
I was unable to attend the meeting regarding the Krupp
development meeting and I am not a neighbor, but I would like to
pass on a few comments related to biking.
Narrowing the street is good, part of it is marked out already. In
2006 First Street will be reconstructed from Pennsylvania Avenue
to Winnebago Street. The entire section will have bike lanes.
When the Krupp development causes the reconstruction of First
Street from Winnebago to Eastwood Drive, it should also have bike
lanes. In addition these bike lanes need to be connected across
Eastwood to the Capital City Trail (formerly known as the Isthmus
Path). This will create an important north-south continuity and
connectivity for biking.
Resident Bike Parking:
In addition to motor vehicle parking, the underground parking
should include specific area(s) for resident bike parking.
Visitor and Public Bike Parking:
There should be adequate bike parking near each entrance to the
building. These paved parking areas should be visible (not isolated)
and are best in the most active people areas for security purposes.
Do not hide them in some out of the way place that is prone to
theft and vandalism. The parking racks should meet the approval of
city staff. For example the "wave" racks are architecturally
pleasing but not very functional.
Thanks for considering.
