Ok, so yesterday was the big day. We rallied about 35-50 bicyclists down at city hall to give public comment and ask the RTC to try to come up with something (anything really) for the section of 4th st. between Arlington and Lake. They were considerate of everyone there and even moved the agenda item up for us so we didn't have to wait around to give our comments.
I had to leave early, so I didn't get to hear the actual RTC presentation or the remaining public comments but I hope it was enough to at least delay the vote. Since I didn't stick around I'm still in the dark about the outcome.
The display of bicycles outside city hall was pretty cool though!
