On street bike parking

Last week, for the first time, the city created on-street bicycle parking. 23 high-demand spots around town got protected bike racks.

Glad and impressed to see 11th St and Park Rd in Columbia Heights was included, actually getting the new parking on two opposite corners. The new businesses there (as well as a bit further down the street) have really brought that strip alive in the last few years. It's become a destination in the evenings, and increased biking means all those patrons won't have to displace residents' parking.
