Due to 40 inches of snow that fell on Pittsburgh last month during the previously scheduled Public Hearing on Pittsburgh’s Bike Parking Ordinance, the hearing has been rescheduled for today. The measure unanimously passed the Planning Commission and now faces the City Council before heading to Mayor Ravenstahl’s desk.
Unfortunately the hearing was rescheduled during the National Bike Summit in Washington, DC meaning that the staff of Bike Pittsburgh, the city’s tireless bicycle and livable street advocates, will be out of town.
Now it is up to city residents, cyclists, developers, and business owners to speak up and demand that the City Council pass the Bike Parking Ordinance which is “integral to continue on the road toward a green, sustainable, and active city,” according to Bike Pittsburgh.
