Decoro Bike Lane Not A Problem

khts_citymatters_scvlogoThe look of Decoro Drive is changing again.

Two weeks ago the city re-striped the popular street to add bike lanes, and in the process removed one motor vehicle lane in each direction.

After the move, some residents, citing traffic concerns pleaded with the city council to add the car lanes back, prompting the city to call a community meeting.

City Manager Ken Pulskamp hosted the meeting, which was designed to get the community’s representative take on the matter.

About 150 people showed up to the meeting and an overwhelming majority were in favor of adding the vehicle lanes back to Decoro, which links McBean Parkway and Seco Canyon Road.

The decision can be called a victory for both cyclists and motorists as the new striping, which will be done within the next four weeks, will return the road to four lanes while leaving room for a seven-foot bike lane in both directions.

“Everyone seemed to feel that it was a good compromise for both bicyclists and motorists,” said Gail Ortiz, public information officer for the city.

The meeting was held Pulskamp at Helmers Elementary School, and it gave residents a chance to voice their opinions about the new bike lane.

A major complaint was that the reduction in lanes slowed traffic too much, and made it difficult to enter and exit the Northpark Village Square shopping center.

The meeting was designed to ensure that the changes were what the community wanted and not just the opinion of a select group.
