The plan is being called “The Pedestrian Safety Plan” but in reality, this plan is for the Bicycle Community.
This Bicycle Community already has lanes on Broadway, which is parallel to PowderHouse Blvd, another on Boston Ave. in. Medford but that’s not enough… they “do not like to be told where to ride” … so they want the Blvd. too!!
Claiming the Boulevard lane will be safer than the Broadway bike lane 🤷♀️ 🙄. A two way bike lane means a huge loss of parking for one whole side of PowderHouse Boulevard. Loss of parking for residents, teachers, other local employees and Doherty’s Funeral Home. Next meeting is this Thursday 4/25 at 6pm at the West Somerville Neighborhood School.
A lot of local residents may be unaware of this plan and flyers were placed on cars this afternoon by concerned residents to help spread the word. Lets be heard, spread the word!!!
