To lay it straight will bike lane expansion be a priority among the New Council slate, or at least your own? Yeah blah blah it's a balancing act between different modes of transportation, but for instance - would you/New Council throw the remaining components of Biketoria into the backburner or otherwise downscale it?
My position - attribute to me only.
Before any infrastructure project moves forward I want to see an independent audit ifnthe Johnson Street Bridge.
We need this to review how your money was spent and what went wrong and what went right. This should not take long.
We will learn lessons from the audit and that we can apply to all infrastructure projects.
Biketoria is a valued project and I want to see it completed as successfully as possible and with an outcome that has the best value.
I do not want it “on the back burner”.
As to the priority in my mind: fast action on homeless file. This is getting out of hand. I want to see resources on this so we can move the needle.
I am asking people what they want to see. I have to be honest, expansion of bike lanes is not coming up at the door, online or in my emails. That doesn’t mean I dismiss the issue, I am not, you asked about first priorities and I do not want to mislead you.
I hope the next council will take the time to construct a transparent strategic plan to reflect issues in the city . I use this in my day-to-day work and on the two boards where I serve as a director. This way Councol would have a goal and you would know where in that plan each issue stands. I believe cycling infrastructure would high on the list.
