These will be similar to the ones that the DOT installed in front of Mudspot on East Ninth Street back in April ...
Jill Woodward wrote this last week at the The 4th Street Food Co-op blog:
We need the parking because so many of our members and shoppers arrive by bike, and it can be difficult to find a parking place near the store.
The tradeoff is 1-2 fewer spaces for automobiles in exchange for up to 20 spots for cycles. That calculation can result in more business for the neighborhood, according to a recent report by TA.
We also understand that Mudspot and Bluestockings on Allen Street have the go-ahead to expand their current bike corrals... No timelines on when the DOT will install any of these bike racks ... word is early 2013.
