After the Tea Party in Bloomington-Normal convinced three Bloomington alderpersons to express skepticism regarding a bike lane on the Main Street corridor, local residents voiced their support for a Main Street corridor bike lane and pedestrian-friendly upgrades.
There has been an outpouring of support for a bike-friendly and pedestrian-friendly Main Street corridor. An online petition for a bike lane, in just three days, garnered over 250 signatures. In comparisons, only 40 people signed a petition opposing the bike lane.
Bicycle advocates will converge on the Bloomington Citizen’s Voice meeting, Monday, April 30th, 6 pm, at Northpoint Elementary (2206 E. College, Bloomington). Attendees will bike to the meeting from various locations around Bloomnington-Normal.
