While Davis hovers at around 25 percent non-automotive transportation mode share, ConAgra is proposing a single, inconvenient grade-separated crossing for its Cannery development.
If the proposed cheapest-option, single bicycle/pedestrian crossing is allowed, The Cannery project will achieve just an 8 percent non-automotive mode share. While the city of Davis struggles to improve its bicycle/pedestrian mode share from 25 to 35 percent, ConAgra is offering us two steps backwards to 8 percent. Why should a new development be allowed to diminish the connectivity that we all want to enhance?
Please join both the Bicycle Advisory Commission and the Davis Bicycles! board of directors in supporting the need for at least two well-engineered grade-separated crossings before The Cannery development is approved.
