The Bicycle Coalition To Make South Philly More Bikeable

  • The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia will hold a public meeting on November 30 (from 6PM-8PM, at the East Passyunk Community Association) in order to promote bicycling in South Philadelphia, which has the highest percentage of bike commuters in the city. Seeing as section’s “super-tight infrastructure” does not allow for the bike lanes that proved successful in Center City, efforts will rather be focused towards creating a safer biking environment, determining appropriate “psychological clues” for motorists towards that end.
  • Newsworks reports on Monday’s planning meeting of the Germantown Community Connection for a new Mural Arts Program piece by Jonathan Laidacker on the western façade of 310 West Chelten Avenue.
  • Occupy Philly is weighing its options, preparing a request to open an appeal process concerning the city’s recent and more stringent limitations on their movement. Other locations around the city may be scouted, as well as seeking assistance from the ACLU or National Lawyers Guild.
