The Cambridge City Council passed The Cycling Safety Ordinance in October of 2020. The Ordinance sets ambitious requirements for the installation of 25 miles of separated bike lanes across the entire city within the next five to seven years. This includes the requirement of the installation of separated bike lanes on all of Massachusetts Ave. The current plan that is under consideration includes the removal of virtually all parking along Mass Ave from Harvard Sq to Dudley St, the removal of all outdoor dining in the street that was created during the pandemic, and the removal of many loading zones.
We need to voice our concerns about the damage this will cause our businesses. If we don’t speak up this plan will go forward.
Attend the Zoom meeting: held by the City of Cambridge, Transportation and Public Utilities Committee about the proposal to get rid of the parking spaces, and put in a separate bike lane along Mass Ave.
Public Comment for this meeting will be conducted virtually via Zoom. Follow the link below to sign up to speak (sign-up will be active 24 hours prior to the start time of each meeting).
