Tonight's Portland Bicycle Advisory Committee (PBAC) meeting will take up the issue of bicycle access along the Willamette Greenway Trail at RiverPlace.
The issue came to a head when a member of a condominium owners association allegedly placed a "No Bikes" sign in the middle of the path (see photo). The owner of Waterfront Bicycle Rentals is concerned at what she feels is an increasingly anti-bike stance by the condo owners.
I posted a story about this that sparked a heated discussion about whether or not bicycles belong on what has become a very congested path.
As it stands now, the path is officially listed as being open to bicycle use and is managed by the Portland Parks Bureau.
According to the PBAC meeting agenda, Bob Downing from the Parks Bureau will present the issues and seek guidance from the committee on an appropriate solution.
The meeting is open to the public and visitors are encouraged to attend. Click here for full meeting agenda.
