Johnny Brenda’s bike corral plan wins community approval
Following Tuesday’s community vote, residents of Fishtown voted in support of a plan to install in-street bike parking at Johnny Brenda’s. This vote follows South Kensington residents’ approval of a similar endeavor at Kung Fu Necktie last week. The Mayor’s office of Transportation and Utilities initially offered installation of these bike corrals (which consist of 6 U-racks in a row) to 10 interested businesses, free of charge. Now that both venues have secured community approval, the project moves under the consideration of City Council president Rep. Darrell Clarke, in whose district the venues reside. According to City Council Communications Director Jane Roh, once City Council receives official word on the votes from the neighborhood civic associations, City Council will move forward with green-lighting the project.
