Bike Corrals: Local Business Impacts, Benefits, and Attitudes, by Drew Meisel.

Yesterday we shared that the Portland Business Alliance believes, "converting on-street metered parking spots and loading zones for non-auto parking use should be avoided." The PBA's position that auto parking and loading zones should remain the top priority over other uses of the public right-of-way in the downtown core was made clear in a letter to PBOT about the Street Seats program (a program that allows cafe owners and other organizations to convert parking spaces into customer seating areas).

After seeing our post, Drew Meisel, a planner at Alta Planning + Design in Portland, sent us over an infographic about bike corrals. Meisel published a study on bike corrals in 2010 as a graduate student at Portland State University's School of Urban Studies and he created the infographic for a presentation he gave this weekend at the American Planning Association's 2013 National Conference.
