NOTE
PUBLIC HEARING POSTPONED

Due to an internal logistical error, the Public Hearing regarding the complete streets projects will be delayed one council cycle.

Instead the hearing will be held on Wednesday July 1, 2015 at 5:30 in the Council Chambers at City Hall.

I apologize for the delay and any inconvenience this may cause. Please forward to any parties who received the initial notification that are not included on this list.

I hope to see you on the 1st instead!

Good Afternoon,

I am writing you to inform you that the City of Davenport is in the process of diligently implementing on-street bike lane projects within the City as originally proposed via the recommendations of Davenport In-Motion.

On Wednesday, June 17th at 5:30pm, a public hearing is scheduled to approve the plans and specifications for five new complete streets initiatives within the City. They are as follows:
  1. Dedicated bike lanes on Marquette Street from The Duck Creek Parkway north to 46th Street.
  2. Dedicated bike lanes on Jersey Ridge Road from Kimberly Road north to Jersey Meadows Drive (north of 53rd Street)
  3. Dedicated bike lanes on 3rd and 4th Streets from Marquette Street west to Telegraph Road.
  4. Dedicated bike lanes on Tremont Avenue from E. 46th St. north to Veterans Memorial Parkway.
  5. A combination of sharrows and dedicated bike lanes on 46th Street from Marquette Street to Tremont Avenue @ Davenport Public Works Facilty
Once plans and specifications are approved, this project will be a GO! At this time, I anticipate having enough votes to pass however there are several on Council who may not share the opinion that bike lanes are beneficial to the City. As such, it would be great to have some representation in the audience from the QCBC and any other groups you can think of to speak in favor of the proposed project(s) as well as be on hand to answer any questions from the viewpoint of area stakeholders.

I respectfully request for you to please forward to any interested parties and help get the word on the street!

Thanks!
-Zach

Tour the bicycle collection of Charlie Harper at the Muscatine Art Center. Now through August 2nd.

The exhibit "Pedal Power: Bicycles from the Collection of Charlie Harper" features 26 bicycles dating from 1886 to 1979. Among the earliest bicycles in Charlie's collection are the "highwheelers", dating to the late 1880s. An 1886 Victor Ordinary Bicycle (with a 50" front wheel) by Overman Wheel Co. and an 1888 Columbia Expert Bicycle by Pope Manufacturing Co. are among the oldest featured in the exhibition.

The second time trial was held in Reynolds on June 9th. The route was a circular 20K course that insured a tailwind in at least one part of the ride. Twenty-one riders took part and seemed to really enjoy the evening. Congratulations to everyone that took place. Next race will be at West Lake park in Davenport, July 28th. Come out and enjoy the ride.
