John Scott, Chair of the Share the Road Cycling Coalition and a Windsor resident, was a guest on Rose City Politics this week. Check out the 2nd half of our podcast to hear his opinions and read his Guest Column in tomorrow's Windsor Star. Worth sharing and discussing.
"But is Windsor ready to take advantage of this funding? A recent recommendation by the city’s environment, transportation and public safety committee to not allow bike lanes on Wyandotte Street East in Olde Riverside is disappointing to many stakeholders, including business owners on that section of road who welcome cyclists and the spending that they bring. (Council on Monday delayed making a decision until the city completes its active transportation plan.) There is also the recent controversy over the city paying for vehicle parking, pedestrian sidewalks and bus stops, yet considering a policy would require businesses to pay for new bicycle parking."
