Street Furniture Forum

No, it's not a yard sale, but tonight the Mayor's Office of Transportation and Utilities & the Next Great City Coalition is holding a Forum on the future of street furniture. This forum will present how the city will be approaching its next street furniture contract.

Hopefully there will be a Q and A where you can speak up for more bike parking, including sheltered bike parking, which will be considered (but is not a done deal) and to ask for bike sharing which is not in the plan but other cities have funded bike sharing. You may want to mention that bike sharing would be a great asset during a transit strike as was demonstrated in Paris in 2007.
