SHAME!!! NORTH KANSAS CITY HATES TRAFFIC HOT MESS BUT BIKE/WALK KC DEMANDS CONTROL OF ARMOUR ROAD!!!
In Midtown, Bike/Walk KC earned stern rebuke from residents because their handiwork created dangerous blind spots and turned a beautiful boulevard into an ugly maze.
Now . . .
NKC RESIDENTS DEMAND THE REMOVAL OF BIKE LANE OBSTACLES ON ARMOUR ROAD BUT MIDTOWN ACTIVISTS RALLY TO SILENCE COMPLAINTS FROM THE COMMUNITY!!!
In fairness, here's how the cycling advocates explain their position . . .
BikeKC: Why do we care about Armour Road in North Kansas City?
As the region’s only metro-wide pedestrian/bicycle advocacy organization, BikeWalkKC works in city halls across the five-county region to speak up for improvements to the built environment for all who live, work, and visit our cities. North Kansas City is one such city that we believe has been a leader in planning and implementing projects that make it more liveable, safe, inviting, and prosperous.
Proposed plans to remove recent “complete street” improvements to Armour Road (less than one month after the improvements were completed) have compelled us to mobilize our Complete KC coalition, members, and advocates to add our voices to those of North Kansas City residents, business owners, and others who support leaving the improvements in place for further study, refinement, and benefits.
Accordingly we ask our blog community . . .
SHOULD NKC LISTEN TO BIKE/WALK ACTIVISTS OR COMPLAINTS FROM PEOPLE WHO LIVE AND WORK ALONG YET ANOTHER STREET THAT'S REJECTING THIS TRAFFIC TROUBLE?!?
You decide . . .
