Sharrows on University pass City Council

Read the Herald report here:

But council member Tyrone Grandstrand called for the several bicyclists who attended the meeting to speak and say why they want sharrows on University as opposed to other roads.
The four cyclists who spoke said they’ll bike on University Avenue with or without sharrows, because it’s the fastest, most direct path between UND and downtown.
Council member Ken Vein said if the bicyclists are using University anyway, the city might as well make it safer.

More on this later.  The Northern Star Cycling Club was tweeting some of the more interesting commentary from the meeting, but I didn’t audio record it this time.

Update: The official video from the city council meeting is up.  Direct download item 4.14.
