You are focusing on Christmas, so not only is Tari holding Town Hall meetings now, the City is holding a Public Meeting FOUR days before Christmas! All are hoping you don’t show up!
The City wants to redesign the intersection of Fairway Drive and Empire to include BIKE LANES and a sidewalk.
It doesn’t matter that very few (I’ve never seen one) bikers are using the lanes on Washington. Ditto Jersey Ave.
EMPIRE STREET AT FAIRWAY DRIVE
PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE
BLOOMINGTON, IL- The City of Bloomington Public Works Department is considering improvements to the intersection of Empire Street and Fairway Drive. Conceptual plans include adding bike lanes, reconfiguration of vehicle lanes, adding sidewalk, and constructing a raised median on the north leg of Fairway Drive. This work would be done in conjunction with asphalt resurfacing.
All persons interested in the proposed improvement are invited to discuss the Empire and Fairway Intersection Improvements at a public meeting on December 21, 2017 from 4:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M., at the United States Postal Service, 1211 Towanda Avenue, Bloomington, IL. The meeting will be an informal open house format and interested persons may stop by any time between 4:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M.
Merry Christmas from Bike Blono!
Special interest groups who helped elected the current Council run Bloomington. You get the bill.
Why else would Public Works waste money on bike lanes when many streets aren’t fit for vehicles?
