Many of us on the anti-road narrowing side of this debate feel we have been ignored, downplayed, and dismissed by the City over this issue. Although the panel is three people for bike lanes and two against road narrowing, we still anticipate a much more even-handed discussion than previous formats have allowed. Given how passionate both sides are feeling about this issue, we expect a lively and engaging conversation, and we very much look forward to it. Hope to see you there!
