What is Coral Gables Mayor Valdes-Fauli afraid of?
He has placed a resolution on Tuesday’s agenda (January 28 2020, item F-7), which would direct staff to delete a key element of the ongoing bike lanes project before residents vote.
The Alhambra Circle Complete streets project includes bicycle lanes, sidewalks, and road improvements. A good portion of the project will be funded by a grant the City won based upon the bicycle lane component. If the resolution passes, the bicycle lane component would be eliminated, and the City would lose it’s grant. The timing of this resolution is suspect – now that the City is preparing to send out official resident ballots, the mayor wants to change the project?
