Respectfully, I dont think the issue is as simple as saying "no bikes on the sidewalk," problem solved. I assume a more comprehensive approach would be needed if indeed the number of and use of bikes as a means of transport has increased.

Tm - it is that simple - the law is the law . Bikes as transportation WONDERFUL - however keep the off the sidewalks and park them in a appropriate rack . More Racks are needed especially in the area of Starbucks where patrons on bikes congest the pedestrian areas with bikes on the sidewalks ... the problem in our town is EVERYONE thinks they are special and above known laws. Ticket campaign will end the arrogance.

Ticket campaign will also make this a less desirable place to come to. Make Star Smucks provide bike racks for their patrons or fine them for a disorderly premiss. Win win. Star Bucks has more money then we do and if I'm not mistaken the owner of Starbucks its self lives here and that is his private store. Why should tax payers have to provide bike racks for business's patrons that they are capitalizing off of? Are tax payers going to pay for my driveway to be widened to accommodate guests when they visit? Why is every good idea just dumped on the backs of tax payers. There is more then one way to achieve an objective.

The Mayor looks like he's ready for a nap in the picture above. But then after listening to the bike police, the poop police, the parking police and every other self-appointed new sheriff in town I'd be kind of tired too. Let him do his job folks. He's REALLY good at it.
