Update: Petition for protected bicycle lanes for King Street’s redesign

The petition for protected bicycle lanes on King Street’s redesign has just under 900 signatures as we begin 2014.  We’ve kept the petition open but are not actively seeking signatures as we believe our voice has been heard.

The King Street redesign team indicates they’ve created additional options. The encouraging tone of correspondence leads us to believe protected bicycle lanes will be put forward as an option.  There are also plans underway for either another public information night or a formal presentation and open community discussion with City Council.

Both Barb Magee Turner and Melissa Durell have indicated they are trying to pull together a meeting to review / present the options to the various stakeholders in early January 2014 including WaterlooBikes.

The message is positive, yet no details have been confirmed. Stay tuned for further updates.

    If this happens, it will be a pleasant transformation. By the way, has anyone done study, even if informal, how many students from the 2 universities and college cycle-commute to work/school? Or survey students the likelihood of cycling more often if there was cycling infrastructure that was safer, etc.?
