Description

I know this isn't the right time of year, but whenever funds can be found to do so, I would greatly appreciate it if either bike lanes, edge lines, or parking stalls could be striped on Fitch Street. Because residents almost never feel comfortable using the on-street parking here (and when they do, they usually park halfway onto their front lawns), the lanes are effectively 20 ft wide, which is unacceptable in my opinion. Since this is technically part of Route 10, this may be a state DOT issue, which may complicate things…

Nonetheless, I figured it was worth requesting, because this street could potentially make a great bike route if people didn't drive 55 mph as if it's a rural highway.
