Let's not forget Ann Weatherill and Sally Eustis who were killed on local roads while trying to enjoy the beauty of our valley on a bike.

Where are Tourism Walla Walla and the Port of Walla Walla on this issue? The aviary provides an added element to our beautiful Pioneer Park that is an economic stimulus to our region.

Mostly a male dominated leadership of the city. It would be interesting to see sex based salary data. Sadly, the only female leadership role is at the library. The library that should be merged into the RLD that has the ability to do inter-library loans.

Unfortunately for bicyclists in Walla Walla the man that has been consistently opposed to building roads for cyclists is now mayor, again. The man who flipped from supporting the engineering report on Rose St. to bending to a vocal minority is now mayor pro-tem. Hopefully, both will reconsider when the next phase of our tax dollars will be spent.

Namvet, "Pedestrians are not considerate"? Do you mean on this road there is no consideration for pedestrians? I would agree with that. What inconsiderate act did the gentleman returning from church do when he was killed and drug down Poplar St. when a driver had the sun in his eyes? http://union-bulletin.com/news/2013/o...

Right. Traffic moving too fast, left turns and right turns into obscure business accesses and no safe way for pedestrians to get across. All in all a dangerous corridor that needs improvement.

We paid over $170k in design services and Rose St. should have 3-lanes, and bike lanes for the safety of all.

Some of the fault could plausibly be assigned to the design of the road. Is there a way a pedestrian can cross this road safely?

oldguyonabike 3 months, 3 weeks ago on City cycling grows, as does tax temptation

In Walla Walla, cyclists pay for our roads through the Transportation Benefit District's .02% sales tax, income taxes, property taxes, gas taxes, and increased national debt. Unfortunately, Walla Walla City Council refused to acknowledge the need to install bike lanes with the recent Rose St. discussion; ignoring engineering recommendations. We will continue to pay, but in reality our city is bike unfriendly while surrounded by world class cycling. Any thought of increased fees/licensing should be vocally rejected by the local cycling community. On the positive side, new faces have been elected to council. We might need a few more new faces.
