King Street Bicycle Lanes cont.
TRCA sent the attached letter to the Traffic and Parking Board on Sunday, February 23. TRCA continues to oppose the
bike lanes proposed in the "King Street Bicycle Lanes and Pedestrian Improvement Plan" ("Concept 2").
The Traffic and Parking Board rejected the City's plan again at their public hearing on February 24. The Board asked the
citizens of the neighborhood along with the bikers to come up with a plan of their own. A group of King Street residents and
TRCA are working to create another option which will include a safe set of solutions for the bikers as well as the
neighborhood. This issue will go before City Council on March 15, 2014 at a meeting commencing at 9:30 a.m.
There will also be a public comment period at that hearing. If you feel strongly about this issue, you should attend
and sign up to speak.
A petition is being circulated by the King Street Coalition for Safety (comprised predominantly of residents who live on or
near the affected King Street area) regarding the installation of bike lanes on King Street. You can access it here.
