It all comes down to this: Sharrows are on the City Council agenda for Tuesday July 10th at 7pm.
The Bike Safety Task Force took up the issue back in 2009, but at that time it encountered a skeptical reception, even among the committee members. Times have changed and this spring the 2012 Citizens Bicycle Safety Committee voted overwhelmingly to recommend the issue to the City Council.
As President of the Orange County Bicycle Coalition, Pete Van Nuys reminded me,
Sharrows benefit motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Their installation demonstrates leadership and commitment to both the quality of life and the future of transportation by the city of Newport Beach.
Installation will be Coast Hwy through Corona del Mar, a worthy roadway many will agree.
Come to the City Council meeting at City Hall to voice your support: 7pm July 10th, 3300 Newport Blvd.
