HBA opposes the bike lane to nowhere

HBA has negotiated for parking compromises related to the City bike lane on University Ave. that made those lanes better.

The Hillcrest Business Association (HBA) is encouraging members to speak out about SANDAG's proposed bikes lanes on 4th and 5th Ave. through Hillcrest.

SANDAG is planning on replacing the City's bike lane (which takes out no parking) with a bike lane that will remove almost 40 parking spaces from the heart of Hillcrest.

Council member Chris Ward supports this effort!
