We just received notice from Assistant City Manager Fred Greene that the March 9th council bike/ped work session has been canceled with the intent to reschedule the meeting for April. Seeking clarification on the rescheduling reason, we received a response from Jim Coulter, Director of City Water Utilities (and Streets).
Jim stated that the reason for rescheduling is that the city would like to hold a public input meeting in early April, because they’d like to gather input from the cycling community before holding a council work session.
So stay tuned for our announcement of an April input meeting announcement, because that will be an incredible opportunity for cyclists and pedestrians to give input that will influence the following city council discussion. If there ever was a time in Denton to rally for improved cycling infrastructure, it’ll be at the meeting in April.
Because we already had a March 9th Facebook event for the canceled council session, we’ll instead convene on the back patio at Dan’s Silverleaf to hold the first BikeDenton meeting. Come out and share your ideas, because it’s going to take a lot of inertia this year to get the ball rolling on future progress.
