WPB, a special service area funded by Wicker Park & Bucktown which has an annual budget of over $1 million, is evaluating its programs. Please take a moment to voice your support to continue and expand its transportation programs, which have included:
- the bike corral at the Flatiron Building
- additional orange bike racks around the area
- the Milwaukee Avenue Open Streets festival
- free bike light events
- plus murals, street cleaning, snow clearance, and a lot more around the neighborhood
and could include many more -- the WPB Master Plan calls for everything from bike boxes and bike signals to bike incentive programs to new public parks along Milwaukee Avenue. Take their quick, six-question survey and vote for better biking!
(I used to live in the neighborhood and was an original co-chair of the commission's Transportation Committee. Hope you all appreciate some of our ideas!)
