The two recommendations in the final parking report for which there are not brief, simple sentences are related to bicycles. These recommendations, numbers 5 and 8, are longer term and more complex.
Many of us associated with the NDDC believe that bicycles will become a larger and more important piece of our community’s transportation system. We therefore believe that Northfield should start working now on these longer term and more complex recommendations.
Bicyclists and anyone else should review recommendations 5 and 8 and think about ideas for these initiatives and/or projects. Then, please consider attending the 8/13 Council work session or contacting a Councilor or two over the next week.
We believe that it is important to encourage the Council to keep working for better bicycle transportation in Northfield as we address parking in downtown.
