Portland Press Herald: City may cut parking to add bike lanes
Portland Daily Sun: Bike lane proposal would eat up parking on Ocean, Washington Aves.
And as predicted, the first article interviews grumpy people who live on Washington Ave. and don't want to lose their taxpayer-subsidized on-street vehicle storage units. Luckily, there are thousands of unused parking spots on adjacent side streets - realistically, this shouldn't be a serious issue.
Anyway, after you're done telling the transportation committee of the City Council how important these bike lanes are (tonight, 5-7 PM in Room 209 of City Hall), head down to the waterfront for dinner at the Bike Coalition of Maine's annual fundraiser at Flatbread. Passing this on from BCM executive director Alison Vogt:
Don't forget to join the Bicycle Coalition ofat Flatbreads Pizza on Commercial Street tonight between 5 and . Bicycle enthusiasts from the Portland area are encouraged to come out and enjoy an evening of pizza and beer. BCM receives a donation for all pizza and beer sold tonight (takeout orders count too).
