Thank you for signing the petition encouraging San Antonio City Council Member Rebecca Viagran to support the bike lanes on South Flores.
If you live, work, or visit the South Side or South Flores area, take a moment now to email the office of Council Member Rebecca Viagran of District 3 at firstname.lastname@example.org
The portion of South Flores that has new bike lanes is in District 3, and the support of Council Member Viagran will be key to prevent the removal of these bike lanes. Many folks in the district have complained about the way the bike lanes were installed without much notice, and have blamed the new lanes for problems such as traffic, lack of parking, and even lower retail sales.
Council Member Viagran supports cycling, but she still needs to serve the constituents of District 3. It is critical that everyone who lives or works in District 3 and cares about bicycling contacts the Councilwoman right away. (District 3 is the South Side / Harlandale and Southeast Side, see map here)
In your email to email@example.com, be sure to:
- Thank Councilwoman Viagran for her support of biking and walking
- Let her know that you live and/or work District 3 and if you are a voter
- Let her know that you are happy that bike lanes have been installed on South Flores
Also please cc: firstname.lastname@example.org in your correspondence with Council Member Viagran.
Looking for other ways to help? Ride your bike on S. Flores and shop at the many interesting stores and restaurants in the area. Let staff at these places know that you rode your bike and are happy about the bike lanes.
The project area starts south of US 90, you can use this map to plan some stops. In particular, La Fiesta grocery store has complained that retail sales have dropped since the bike lanes went in. Let’s show S. Flores that Bicycling Means Business!
