Fourmile Creek Failure

Yesterday the Boulder Greenways Advisory Committee killed the Fourmile Creek Path because of objections from the NIMBYs living near the right-of-way.  Separated off-street infrastructure that’s available year round is vital to getting kids on bikes, and seeing them as a real mode of transportation.  Political will is essential to build for the future even when the nearby and present interests are opposed.  Without some backbone here, we’re never going to get a transportation system that isn’t wholly dependent on fossil fuels, or streets that are built for human beings.
