Bicycle-Pedestrian Plan Open House

Here’s a good opportunity to have your say about the future of sustainable, carbon-neutral transportation in Springfield (i.e. bicycling and walking): The City of Springfield Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan Open House.

When: 28 February, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

Where: Busch Municipal Building

I assume there will be much talk of bicycle lanes. Again, I have decided to pick my battles by publicly opposing only those lanes that put novices into immediate danger while fooling them that they are safe, e.g. door-zone lanes.

    How do you figure either walking or biking are carbon-neutral? Last I checked, lots of carbon gets expended growing the fuel for non-motorized people. It is how the Earth supports so many people.

    I do favor your approach of picking your battles. Otherwise you’d be considered grumpy – like me!

    Well, there’s probably nothing within human artiface that’s strictly carbon neutral. In fact, one could make the case that walking and bicycling are harmful to the planet because these activities tend to help people live longer so they can pollute more 🙂 And, sadly, I already wear the grumpy hat here. Trying to walk it back a bit.
