The previously celebrated step the City was about to take in installing a new bike rack at the Tom Thumb at El Dorado and Hardin took a step backwards. Apparently the guidelines wrapped around the grant money (which was used to purchase the bike racks) says the bike racks can only be installed on public property. This puts a whole new twist to where the 8 bike racks can be setup.
Samantha Frison and Gary Graham weren’t aware of this restriction until we worked to get the rack setup with Tom Thumb, and they have contacted the management of the grocery store and apologized for the confusion.
For all the BFM members who are now looking for homes for these bike racks, please change your focus and look for locations on Public land.
