[Cyclelicious] New comment on Parking? Or Bike Lanes?.

Peter has left a new comment on your post "Parking? Or Bike Lanes?":

i really don't see why every single town has to go through this over and over. if we have the proof that bike lanes will work for business, then we need to assemble it and make it widely available to all of us bike people so we can disseminate it.

and we need a 'best strategies' document that tells each town exactly how to deal with specific problems - design patterns for certain situations. we've solved these problems before - why always reinvent the wheel?

most importantly - the city can guarantee to 'undo' things if they don't work out over the course of a year or two, and even promise to kick in a certain amount of revenue should businesses 'suffer unduly' because of the changes. It takes some work, and there's some risk, but if we really believe that bike lanes can and will work for business/livability/etc., then the risk should be very low.
