Grant Stern <email@example.com> FW: District 6 Feedback 1 message District6 <District6@miamidade.gov> Tue, Sep 4, 2012 at 2:19 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org I would like to thank the cycling community for expressing their opinions and concerns about this item that is of importance to all the residents of Miami-Dade, as many of us rely or know of someone who relies on bicycles as a means of transport and/or recreation. My intent in sponsoring this resolution was not to prevent bike lanes from being created. On the contrary, I support and embrace establishing bike lanes Countywide. I acted out of concern for the safety of cyclists, particularly on SW 57 AVE from SW 8 ST to SW 24 ST, where customers of businesses along this stretch of road back their cars directly onto SW 57 AVE. I am concerned that this would create an unsafe environment for cyclists. Additionally, I sought greater cooperation between FDOT, Miami-Dade County, and Municipalities to make sure we create an atmosphere where bike lanes continue to be encouraged while ensuring safety. In light of your concerns, I am requesting this item be temporarily deferred to ensure nothing in this item will negatively impact the cycling community. Your opinions are always welcome. Commissioner Rebeca Sosa Miami-Dade County, District 6 1000 SW 57 Avenue, Suite 201 Miami, FL 33144 Office: 305-267-6377 Fax: 305-267-6366 www.miamidade.gov/district06 From: Email [mailto:Email] Sent: Tuesday, September 04, 2012 12:57 PM To: District6 Subject: District 6 Feedback Subject: Bike Lanes Comments: A change of language is needed in Miami-Dade Legislative Item #121569. Please do not support any resolution that would allow FDOT and the municipalities to get even more slack on bicycle network safety, connectivity, and accessibility. Name: Gran Stern Address: 1750 N.
