Stanton To Look At Regulating Bike Parking

Print More

Stanton city officials are considering developing rules on bicycle parking on sidewalks and other public spaces.

City staff have reported bikes chained to poles along public sidewalks, blocking access for pedestrians and people in wheelchairs. Since the city doesn’t have a lot of bike commuters the issue is not “significant,” according to the agenda report.

Existing law already allows the city to impound bikes that block public sidewalks. The council could, however, decide to adopt a more extensive ordinance to regulate bike parking citywide and target certain problem areas.

The city council will discuss the issue at its regular Tuesday meeting at 6:30 p.m. Read the full agenda and reports here.
