Maintenance of all of our city's streets, not just Downtown, is imperative. The City has done a credible job expending the additional sales tax to this particular area. Short time inconvenience for long term gain Downtown is well worth it. I encourage the City to continue with overall maintenance of our streets, particularly in our City's jewel of Downtown.

I'm happy to see the city increasing bicycle infrastructure. Just yesterday, I was cut off by someone in a car pulling over to wait for a parallel parking spot. I hope this will discourage some people from doing that by increasing the visibility of the bike lane.
More than that, repaving Nipomo to Archer will make both driving and cycling those sections significantly more pleasant.

Monterey st needs to be repaved at the least! There are so many cracks and potholes and add that to the fact there is no designated bike lane, it makes it really dangerous for bikers.

I would love the city to improve the bike-ability and walk-ability of downtown with protected bike lanes and and in turn decrease automobile presence and traffic. By encouraging biking downtown you could potentially increase the time people will want to spend downtown with a quieter safer atmosphere. It will make it like farmers market every day! Great for businesses and for people. I think the closures on Monterey and Higuera with the "Open SLO" project are a perfect example of user experience design thinking and I believe installing bike lanes will make this a permanent reality.

It's great to hear about protected bike lanes and such. Will any extra attention be given to the intersection of Higuera + Morro? Sometimes I find myself (or see others) struggling to get across traffic to get onto the bike lane. I am VERY excited for the bottom part of Higuera to be re-paved - it is very rough on bikes. Can the curb cuts (the yellow plastic on top with bumbs for visually-impacted folks) be made with a less slipper-when-when substance? Although bikes aren't supposed to be on sidewalks every once and a while it makes sent to access a bike parking spot and when it's wet (the 3 days of rain we get), sometimes I lose my back wheel or slide out. I've heard this complaint from others as well. Thanks for advocating for us alternative transportation people!!!!

Please include protected bike lanes on these streets. Creating more protected bike lanes throughout downtown would make me feel so much safer while riding in that area. The green painted sections of bike lanes near intersections are great, and I'd love to see more of that.

I would like protected bike lanes especially downtown and on Santa Rosa street.

These improvements will make cycling and walking an easier choose for people! I support this!

I would love to see protected bike lanes downtown and beyond!
I am in support of the effort to increase bike, pedestrian, and transit infrastructure in Downtown. I implore the City to reduce/remove parking requirements entirely in Downtown and throughout the City. Minimum parking requirements hinder SLO's potential by filling our city with unproductive, empty parking spaces that don’t add value to our places. They push homes and businesses farther apart, impede the walkability of our neighborhoods, raise the cost of housing, and place an especially costly burden on our local entrepreneurs. In the absence of parking minimums, we’ll still have parking—but we’ll be free to decide how much it’s worth to us and weigh its value against the other things we could do with the same finite, precious land. We’ll no longer be forced to build more parking than we really need.
