Great piece. I'm glad Kirkendall has a solid neighbourhood association. As we've seen with the recent Cannon bike lane extension, Hunter bike lanes, and Herkimer/Charlton plans, you certainly WILL have the most basic, least useful design suggested from city hall and will need to counter it with these better options that have become commonplace in cities around the world, including our closest city up the QEW. Toronto has started to do a very impressive job at making up for lost time with protected bike lanes through it's downtown core.

Of course, Hamilton squelchers will point out that it could never work here because unlike downtown TO, we have serious traffic issues and can't sacrifice road space.
But keep up the good advocacy, and hope for similar results to Charlton/Herkimer.
