On the agenda for tonight’s city council meeting, item 5.D.2.b shows a citizen report: “Kathryn Newton regarding cyclist and pedestrian safety and rights.”
If you’ll recall, Kathryn’s husband, Alex Newton, was hit by a car and then ticketed for “failure to yield”.
Although the council meeting starts at 6:30PM, the other agenda topics (including gas well ordinances) look fairly weighty and could take 3 or more hours to get through before Kathryn can speak. Regardless, we’ll be there and looking forward to hearing her address the council. This is only the second bike-related citizen report we’ve ever seen, so it’s a great one to spectate and show support for.
