Dear concerned cyclist,
The Annette Street bike lane needs your help. A full kilometre of the bike lane risks not being approved. Our councillor and City staff need to hear from people what want the full bike lane - including the disputed section between Jane and Windermere. The full bike lane will offer cyclists more safety on this busy street. If you bike on Annette Street or would like to start biking on this street if it was safer, now is the time to have your say. Please attend the public meeting on this issue to show your support for the full bike lane on Annette Street and to let City staff and the councillor know your views.
The strength in numbers of a strong, vocal community of bike lane supporters will ensure the health, safety, and environmental sustainability of our neighborhoods.
The status quo of a fragmented network has to end.
City staff will be present at the public meeting to answer your questions and concerns, as well as Councillor Saundercook. The Councillor's invitation is below:
In June 2008 City Council approved bike lanes for the section of Annette Street between Runnymede Road and Dundas Street West. As your Councillor I would like to discuss the section between Runnymede Road and Jane St. with you the community.
The public meeting will include a presentation on alternatives for providing bike facilities west of Runnymede Road to Jane Street. Comments and questions may be submitted directly to staff and will be reviewed and considered.
The public meeting is scheduled for:
Monday September 15th, 2008
James Culnan Catholic School
605 Willard Avenue
7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
