UPDATED: email your city council
Support proposed local bike infrastructure such as green bike lanes and traffic slowing medians by emailing the Tempe City Council at firstname.lastname@example.org
Businesses hoping to dissuade the council from going forward with some of these changes have been meeting with your city leaders. Make sure their voices aren’t the only ones heard.
Online public comment on the city’s forum has closed, but you still have time to contact your city leaders directly by emailing email@example.com.
Want to post your support but don’t know what to say? Here’s a few lines you can simply copy and paste;
Thank you for adding green bike lanes to Tempe, they are greatly needed!
Please continue to go forward with all median plans. They will help keep traffic from colliding with cyclists on the roadways.
Please install a stoplight at Roosevelt and Farmer, this will help cars, bikes and pedestrians safely cross, rather than forcing us to play frogger in traffic.
(From previous TBAG post)
The city of Tempe is introducing plans that help you and your fellow two-wheeled friends to more easily and safely commute through Tempe. These plans could have a great impact not only on the safety of the roadways, but also in the beautification of our city… that is, if the city continues to hear from YOU!
Bike lane modifications, medians and other proposed changes are being fought by some who may not understand what it’s like to cycle in traffic with little to no bike infrastructure. Don’t let the proposed plans fall by the wayside. Join in on meetings, email your city leaders and let Tempe know that the growing bike community demands safer, bike-friendly streets.
Thanks to those of you who joined the University/Hardy Drive Screetscape Project open house, the Broadway Road Screetscape meeting and every one who has been submitting comments and statements on behalf of bike Tempe cyclists.
Be seen. Be heard. Be a bike champion in Tempe!
