Promote bicycle usage for 101 York Road residents [Letter]

The proposed multi-unit housing on York Road, 101 York, is opposed by some Towson community members for many reasons. One concern is the limited amount of parking provided for the residents — which are likely to be students — as well as traffic concerns.

One solution might be to provide sufficient indoor and outdoor bicycle parking in lieu of limited automobile parking. Bicycle transportation by students would decrease the flow of automobile traffic and congestion.

Currently, with the new bicycle lanes in Towson, cycling is becoming easier and safer. Promoting this mode of transportation could help with automobile congestion and parking issues. The construction of the housing development might also include plans for a designated location for student bicycling repairs and sales, in order to encourage the activity to students. If the ultimate goal is to promote a better quality of life for residents of Towson, then creating more livable communities should be the goal of developers also.
