The Mayor’s 35th Ave NE decision is a dangerous precedent. . . Take Action.

You may have heard this week that the Mayor reversed plans for a bike lane on 35th Ave NE. As neighborhood advocates stated, this upset “undermines the previous decisions of SDOT, city policy and the will of the community – by bending to a vocal minority who used tactics of fear and misinformation. It sets a dangerous precedent for safety projects across the city.” This isn’t an isolated incident, and it cannot become precedent.
