Keith Franchetti endorsed 2019-05-14 16:47:35 -0400My wife and 15 year old daughter often ride our bikes into Burlington from Fort Ethan Allen in Colchester to shop or eat in Burlington. Colchester Ave has been and continues to be unsafe for this purpose. Please consider making this central route in and out of the city more welcoming of all users of that right if way.
We, the undersigned, support the repurposing of the existing public right of way along Colchester Ave to make room for new and improved biking facilities. We call on the City of Burlington and Burlington Public Works Commission to support the repurposing of public space currently used for on-street parking to improve safety for those biking along this corridor. We believe this is an appropriate and beneficial use of public space.Endorse

Keith Franchetti commented on Fall Fundo 2017-10-07 07:08:57 -0400Thanks so much for this great write up! I wish I had gotten a few minutes to ride with you and pass the time. Pesto making, story telling, and literature all sound like great topics to me. Again, thanks for the nice description of a great day and a great event!

Keith Franchetti posted about Speak up for More Stripes on Streets on Facebook 2016-08-06 01:53:45 -0400I endorsed Local Motion's call for More Stripes on Streets. Join the call for more bike lanes in Burlington!
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.

Route 2A from the Essex line into the village is horrible to walk or bike . Multi use paths would enable all us folks that live in that area a way to get to the library, the basketball courts and most importantly The Village Scoop!!

We really need a safe way to bike what is basically Colchester's main artery: Severence Road - Blakely Road. This connects Fort Ethan Allen & Essex Jct. area with Malletts Bay
