Kill Biking On Spur Alley?
At the Tattler, we've noticed the city council and other deliberative bodies in Emeryville make controversial votes that get forgotten by the residents over time. In deference to the general edification of public policy and to strengthen Emeryville's democratic institutions, we will publish occasional short reminders on how the Power Elite in town have voted on these controversial issues.
At the July 17, 2007 council meeting, the vote was:
Should the Bike Plan be overturned and the former railroad spur east of and parallel to Hollis Street called Spur Alley, a public easement, be given away to a private developer for private parking instead of a bike path?
Nora Davis - YES
Ken Bukowski - YES
Dick Kassis - YES
Ruth Atkin - NO
John Fricke - NO
