UPDATE : Sign the petition here.
At the most recent MBAC meeting, baltimorevelo learned that Mt. Royal avenue will likely not have a bicycle lane painted down as part of the Midtown Complete streets redevelopment plan. Since complete streets aren’t really complete without bicycling accommodation – we found this a bit strange.
According to the Baltimore DOT, word came from Fred Lazarus at MICA and UB president Robert L. Bogomolny that bicycle lanes should not be on Mt Royal avenue – resulting in the DOT’s decisions not to include them in the final implementation of the complete streets plan.
MICA students who feel misrepresented by their leadership in this instance have begun to work on petitions and letters to send to the presidents office – but you can voice your concern too. Look for petitions this week outside Penn Station during the morning commute, and feel free to email the president’s of UB or MICA and tell them why you think bicycle lanes are beneficial to the community – especially if you are a part of the UB or MICA community.
