ACTION ALERT: Public meeting TOMORROW 8/2 @ MORPC re: on-street parking downtown [@yaybikes represents!]

As reported by the Columbus Underground, The City of Columbus Department of Public Service has announced the addition of 130 on-street parking spots to the downtown High Street corridor between Nationwide Blvd. and Mound St. The public is invited to a meeting tomorrow to learn more about the proposal:

Thursday August 2, 5-7 pm; Presentation at 5:30 PM
Mid Ohio Regional Planning Commission
Scioto Conference Room
111 Liberty Street, Suite 100
Columbus, OH 43215

Yay Bikes! will be in attendance. We oppose the plan because we believe that it will slow bus traffic, cause cyclists to ride unsafely in the door zone and attract more motor vehicle traffic to downtown.
