City staff are working to improve the 10th Ave Bikeway Corridor (from Trafalger to Victoria) to make it safer and more comfortable for people of all ages and abilities to walk and cycle. The 10th Avenue bike route has a high number of reported cycling collisions relative to other corridors and there are some segments with relatively high motor vehicle volumes., so how is this plan going to help? With the plans to date, we see an increased risk to the safety of patients, and public coming in to and leaving the area not improvements. Easy and safe access for the elderly, mentally& physically challenged and sight/hearing impaired is essential to them accessing the healthcare services the corridor provides, and the proposed changes will make the already challenging access worse. After the planned public open houses the city staff will then present the plan to the Mayor and Council for approval late this year or early in the New Year. This is your chance to voice your opinion. Please sign this petition, and distribute it on to all those that will be affected by this plan in the 10th Ave Health Precinct (from Cambie to Oak) The City’s plan for the 10th Ave Bikeway Corridor include: •The removal of 82 on-street parking spots on 10th Ave (all but a few on-street parking spots on 10th by Cambie) with a plan to pave the open/undeveloped site across from the BC Cancer Agency as a solution. •Limit vehicular traffic to one way going west- bound from Cambie to Willow & from 2 way from Oak to Willow. •Removing metered parking spots going North on Willow & Laurel from 10th to Broadway. •Making disabled, elderly, vision impaired, public who get dropped off or are getting picked up at drop off zones go across a safety/refuge lane followed by a bike lane to access the buildings. While the city has made some improvements to the original plans based on the feedback from the stakeholders and public, ultimately we feel that this bikeway plan is not suited for this area and needs to be diverted to another nearby street. The city should be considering and ensuring the safety of all citizens in Vancouver and B.C. and realize that this plan is one that is unnecessary and careless. **PLEASE SIGN THIS BEFORE DECEMBER 12th

    I bring my husband to Vancouver by car for medical care. He is disabled and unable to use transit. Parking along the 10th Ave corridor is important to us and to many others who live outside Vancouver and must come in to see specialists. Bike lanes are great, but please find another route.
