We, the undersigned, users of Route 2 (West Main Street) in Richmond call on the Town, County and State authorities to implement improvements to make that heavily used section of road safer for all users. The present state of the road creates serious hazards for pedestrians and bicycle users and discourages or prevents them from using it. Immediately (prior to the eventual Route 2 rebuild) we request that the shoulder be re-striped, increasing the shoulder width by 1 foot on each side and reducing lane width from 12 to 11 ft., bringing the widths to the VTRANS standard for state highway lanes - we're simply asking them to comply with their own standard. This low cost, sensible improvement will work better for everyone. In particular, people want improved access to the currently jam-packed Park & Ride to facilitate carpooling and use of the Link Bus, as well as for access to residences and businesses.Endorse

We, the undersigned, call on the City of Burlington to install a semi-permanent pilot version of the Winooski-Howard-St. Paul pop-up walk-bike safety demonstration project by the end of 2017. We ask the City to leave it in place until spring or summer 2018 and collect data on performance of the pilot throughout that period. We request that the City then finalize a permanent design for the intersection and build it in 2018.Endorse

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.

There needs to be more enforcement for drivers with bad habits, crowding cyclists, yelling, throwing objects. Police officers need to be given the legal tools to actively pursue drivers with bad behavior. Bike lanes need to be looked at as continuous paths, not just short sections that suddenly dump a cyclist back into traffic, multiple times, over the course of several miles.
