We, the undersigned, call on the City of Burlington to work with Local Motion and other partners to install new bike lanes on at least two major streets that:
a) are important connections for biking; and
b) can have bike lanes added without significant changes to vehicle lanes and without any major construction.
We urge the City to add bike lanes to these streets by fall 2016. We encourage the City to take a "light and fast" approach to adding bike lanes, restriping streets based on in-house engineering knowledge rather than hiring an outside firm to do the design work.
Finally, we call on Mayor Weinberger to allocate the funds needed to pay for extra line grinding and striping costs incurred to create these bike lanes, and to work with city staff to expedite these projects.

It's shaping up to be a big year for a walkable, bikeable Vermont. We depend on our members for their support as we head into our busy summer season. Here are just a few of the things we will accomplish together this year:
- Ensure that all the major improvements for biking and walking that are happening this year are done right and get the community support they need.
- Help communities across Vermont launch local walk-bike groups and fast-track on-the-ground projects to make walking and biking safer.
- Double the capacity of our Bike Smart program so we can provide on-bike skills training to 15,000+ kids over the course of the year.
- Keep our bike ferry service strong for this season and beyond.
