Disappointed Council Blocks Pedestrian and Bicycle Paths

RECEIVED Sat., April 26, 2008

Dear Editor,
    I was very disappointed to learn that Sheryl Cole convinced a majority of the City Council to block pedestrian and bicycle access to a new development in Hyde Park. I thought our city leaders were supposed to promote alternative transportation. I thought this was supposed to be a more bike-friendly, pedestrian-friendly town. How can they deny pedestrian access to mothers pushing strollers? How can they endanger children on bicycles? I just don't see justification for Hyde Park and Sheryl Cole to block already existing pedestrian and bicycle access.
