BIKE PLAN CITY COUNCIL VOTE: Thursday, June 11, 6pm

June 9, 2009

From Yellow Bike:   Austin cyclists made an excellent showing at last month’s City Council hearing on the 2009 Bicycle Master Plan Update.  Some excellent speeches were made, council-members were serenaded  (select public hearing item 61 and scroll to about 9:33 PM), but unfortunately there was no vote.  The Update’s next hearing is scheduled for this Thursday, June 11, no earlier than 6:00 PM.  If you’ve got something to say – even if you don’t – go there and speak, sit, or stand.  Council’s likely to vote this time, so be ready to celebrate.  If you can’t make the meeting, swing by City Hall and sign up in favor of the Update at one of the computer kiosks in the Lobby.  The item number is 75 PH.  If you’re attending the meeting, but not speaking, the computer lets you donate 3 minutes of time to someone who is.  Do that.  For more on the plan, visit http://www.ci.austin.tx.us/bicycle/update2008.htm.
