[Closed] Bike Petition: Build a Safe and Complete Bike Network in North Vancouver
September 15, 2012
Update: The petition is now closed and it was presented to North Vancouver District Council on Sep 10. Thank you to everybody who signed; we reached an amazing 1,003 signatures! To continue to make your voice heard, or if you are too late to sign the petition, please email your concerns about cycling in North Vancouver District directly to the Council at firstname.lastname@example.org
A North Shore Local Committee member started a petition to North Vancouver District Council to make safer and more convenient bike routes a priority.
District Council recently cancelled planned bike lanes on East Keith Road that were recommended by transportation engineers and that had been endorsed by their Council counterpart in the City of North Vancouver. A couple of weeks later a cyclist was hit by an SUV on this stretch of road. Many other roads and intersections in the District are similarly unsafe, including Upper Capilano Road, Lynn Valley Road, Mountain Highway and Dollarton Highway.
Please sign this petition if you would like to see faster progress towards a safe and complete bike network in North Vancouver District.
HUB is advocating for better cycling infrastructure in North Vancouver, but District Council also needs to hear from people who bike and from their families and friends who want to keep them safe. If you have specific concerns about cycling in the District of North Vancouver, please consider also sending a personal email to the Council (email@example.com).
