Bike coordinator backs Miami 21

A note from Collin Worth, the City of Miami's bicycle coordinator:
"From a transportation perspective, Miami 21 represents a transit-oriented plan, allocating density to existing transit infrastructure. It recognizes the need and importance of planning and accommodating bicycle infrastructure as an alternative mode of transportation. It supports bicycle parking in buildings. It is a leap from the autocentric planning that has created much conflict for cyclists and pedestrians."
As you may know, the City Commission takes up this land use zoning code on first reading Thursday at 2 p.m. Friends and opponents of the proposal expect they'll get a chance to speak.
