Seattle May Revise Bike Plan, Already

Mike Linbom cites the popularity of greenways for why the city is considering spending $100,000 more than the original plan's cost to update it, after just four years.

"Mayor Mike McGinn supports paying for the bike-plan update with a small piece of the city's proposed $60 car-tab fee, which appears on the November ballot as Prop. 1. Funding for the update was recommended by a citizens advisory committee in July and then adopted by the City Council.

Prop. 1 would raise $204 million over 10 years for transit, street, bike, pedestrian and freight improvements. If it fails, the City Council will face some tough decisions about how and whether to improve the bike plan, McGinn said Tuesday."
