It has been a long construction project and more is still to come but the light can be seen at the end of the tunnel. One of the best thing to come from this project has got to be the dedicated walking and bike lanes. Kudos to the first mall owner/developer (Macerich) to work with the cities and county of Marin with the vision and concern for people and the future of how we want to live in this county.
Bike lanes painted in the streets between cars driving and cars parked are not a sign of compassion nor an advanced society no matter who comes up with the idea. My idea is to follow the lead of visionaries such as our brethren in parts of Europe and companies like Macerich! Widen the sidewalks and place a two-three foot wide section of color pavers to mark dedicated bike and walking lanes. Think about it, how much do we really value our fellow citizens safety? I will post pictures later to make my ideas clearer for all. Check back for more.
I want to know what you think.
