On Wednesday night, the Sonoma City Council unanimously voted to drop plans for a bike lane on West Spain Street. Opponents of the plan turned out in force to voice their opinions. They were elated at the outcome of the vote.
At the same time, councilmembers unanimously approved Class II bike lanes for Fifth Street West, West MacArthur Street and Napa Road.
“I think we had a very positive outcome to the meeting,” said councilmember Ken Brown. “We got bike lanes approved on three out of four streets. That’s great.”
The West Spain Street plan called for eliminating 91 parking spaces to accommodate the new bike lanes.
