Does White Center need a ‘Bike Corral’? Meet to discuss on Tuesday, June 17

Local residents and business owners from White Center’s 16th Ave will discuss the need for a bike corral in White Center on Tueday, June 21 starting at 6 p.m. at Luso Food & Wine, located at 9614 16th Ave SW.

“We’’d like to encourage more families and cyclists to ride into our neighborhood by adding a bike corral in downtown White Center!” reads an announcement, which continues:

“Current bike parking isn’t quite enough to meet the needs of a family and the racks we do have –when in use – tend to obstruct sidewalk access for people in wheelchairs or with other mobility challenges. Studies have proven what we know to be true, increasing cycling in a neighborhood tends to create an economic benefit for business owners while improving the health of our community.”

“We’ve already secured funding for this bike rack from King County, so please join us for a conversation to learn about the benefits of a more bikeable downtown White Center and how you can be a part of this exciting improvement.”

WHERE: Luso Food and Wine (9614 16th Ave SW – near the corner of Roxbury and 16th)

WHEN: 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 17
