Cape Coral Transportation Advisory Committee endorses 2 bike lane proposals
At the December 14th meeting of the Cape Coral Transportation Committee meeting,
The four Cape Coral City Council members that are members (Mayor Sullivan, John Carioscia, Chris Chulakes-Leetz and Kevin McGrail) voted to endorse and send the request for bike lanes on Agualinda and Beach to the full City Council for a vote. In addition to Pat Young and Carolyn Conant , Charles Berryhill who lives on Sands Blvd., and Peter Seiler from Germany spoke in favor. Other members of the audience in favor of these bike lanes included Larry Galanter, Mike Swanson and Steve Chupack. Only one gentleman spoke against. Mayor Sullivan became chair of the TAC.
A very special thank you from the Cape Coral team goes to all those affiliated with BWL, the Caloosa Riders, and all others who responded in mid-October to the call to support this SW Cape Coral Neighborhood Association bike lane request. "Yes" Survey Forms returned outnumbered "No" forms by more than 2-1.
