Reminder: Fishtowners Can Vote On Johnny Brenda's Bike Corral Application Tonight at 7pm

The headline pretty much says it all. Residents and business owners in Fishtown are eligible to vote at a meeting of the Fishtown Neighbor's Association tonight. The question at hand is whether to support JB's request for an in-street bike corral facility.

Johnny Brenda's Vote
Date: Tonight, August 21st
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Fishtown Rec Center, 1202 E. Montgomery Ave
Eligible to vote: All residents and business owners in Fishtown*
To bring: proof of residence or business ownership in Fishtown (utility bill or recent mail if your driver's license doesn't list your home address)

Corral would look something like this
Obviously, we think this is one of those win-win-win-win type situations.

We encourage people who support bicycling and economic development in that neighborhood to attend and vote to support the application. This corral will increase bike parking, encourage customers to arrive by bicycle, and will help show the wider Philly business community that customers arrive by bike.

Remember to be courteous to all perspectives voiced at the meeting. And show up: positive change doesn't happen without people speaking up and voting for it.

*Fishtown boundaries, as defined by the FNA are the Delaware River to Laurel Street, Laurel to Front Street, Front to Norris Street, Norris to Trenton Street, Trenton to Frankford Avenue, Frankford to York Street, and York to the Delaware River, including both sides of boundary streets.
