While you are perusing that story on Baristanet leave a positive comment, example "I support better bicycling in Montclair and everywhere in NJ." The incendiary nonsense there reminds me of one of my favorite stories in "The Onion" Local Idiot To Post Comment On Internet
Finding a parking spot in Montclair is a perennial problem plaguing the public - but recently the discussion has spinned over to include bicycles. Montclair Mayor Jerry Fried and the town's planning board attorney Ira Karasic have drafted an ordinance that will make Montclair more bicycle-friendly. It's only mildly surprising coming from Fried, known to champion the benefits - personal and social - of two-wheelin' around town.
The proposed ordinance would require developers to provide safe and secure bicycle parking in any new building or addition to an existing building. That would include commercial, multi-family, recreational facilities and parking lots at transit centers.
