Bike Lanes on Ravenswood

 City Council Members:

Putting in bike lanes on Oak Grove and eliminating parking on Oak Grove is making an already dangerous situation on Pine Street, where I live, much more hazardous.

Eliminating parking on Oak Grove will increase the numbers wanting to park on Pine St, as it is directly across from Nativity School. Pine Street is quite narrow and if cars are parked on both sides, there is room for only one car to drive down the street. Last year, my neighbor’s car was totaled by a garbage truck and a paramedic’s was blocked from moving down the street.

In the mornings, there are Nativity teachers and parents and contractor type trucks who park too far from the curb and it is difficult to see around them and safely enter the street.

I’ve lived here for 20 years and I have given up riding my bike because of the danger.

Please consider making Pine St. a one way with parking on one side. Only then would I be for bike lanes on Ravenswood.

Please also consider having a community meeting about this—mailing those most effected.
