Spokane Valley Failed to Paint New Bike Lanes During Re-Pavement
Ranked in the Top Most Anti-Bike, Unprogressive Cities in the Nation
Argonne Rd, Spokane Valley. The sidewalk is inadequate for bikes due to no markings, overhanging limbs and constant changes in surface.
See how the above city has grown up? They implemented progressive things called "bike lanes" to attract higher quality people. Below would be even worse without bike lanes.
The City of Spokane Valley failed to install new bike lanes during re-paving in the year 2014! No excuses!
This poses a big threat to the community in many major ways:
1) Safety hazard for bicyclists.
2) No bike lanes discourages more environmentally friendly transportation and promotes more vehicle congestion.
3) No bike lanes discourages people from becoming more healthy by riding bikes, putting a larger strain on the healthcare system.
4) No bike lanes means the area doesn't attract more enlightened, healthy people to relocate here.
Please sign the petition, call the city planner, Mike Basinger at (509) 720-5331 and email him requesting they paint bike lanes.
Once the city paints new bike lanes, I will reverse this post by changing the title to "Spokane Valley Paints New Bike Lanes" and will upload photos of the bike lanes.
