Time for the Columbia Association to step foward
No one is a bigger supporter of how wonderful CA is with the management of our open spaces and bike paths. It is one of the biggest reasons why many of us never see us leaving this community. However with the recent attention given to a biking accident involving a 4 year old girl it is overdue for some community discussion with CA about improving the safety of our paths that are shared with bikers, joggers and walkers. I have blogged in the past about one of the dangers I have experienced on one of our paths and how we might make our community more bike friendly. The recent move to widening the paths to 10 feet on some of our heavily used paths is a good move but it is an incomplete solution to the dangers posed by bikers on our paths. There is only so much that can be done by trying to educate bikers on the need to be courteous on their use of the paths.
