Bike Lanes or Bust?

Many residents have expressed concerns about the absence of dedicated bike lanes in the landscape design plans being proposed for West Avenue. Are these an immediate-term must have? Or if we find that there is not broad-based community support for bike lanes, should we still move forward with the other improvements proposed in the plan that, knowing that change in any community tends to be incremental and that the other landscape improvements (e.g. enhanced crosswalks, planted medians, street trees) could go a long way toward making West Avenue a more people-centered place?
