Meeting Will Tackle Issue Of Maintaining Spokane's "Bike Friendly" Status

On his blog, Spokane City Councilmember Jon Snyder writes that cutting the position of the Bicycle
and Pedestrian Coordinator recently could mean the city loses its designation as a Bike Friendly City. Spokane was awarded a bronze status from the League of American Bicyclists in 2010.

If you are worried about the implications this could have, Mr. Snyder encourages you to attend a meeting of the Bicycle Advisory Board tomorrow night, Feb. 18 at 6 p.m. in the lower level of City Hall at 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd in the Council Briefing Center.

The meeting agenda includes a discussion on the topic.
