The Post covers the same story that the Patch got yesterday, that the King Street bike lane debate is dragging into March. Why?
Residential activists, who were told that Baier was the final authority on the matter, found a 50-year-old city law that allows appeals having to do with parking on city streets.
Baier said Wednesday that the 1963 law discovered by the residents had never before been used, and after the city attorney’s staff examined it, they determined that the bike lane plan should slow down.
“I want to be totally transparent about this,” Baier said. The traffic board could have a public hearing in February, and the plan could go to the City Council at its March 15 meeting, he said.
