Poor parking/bike rack decision

Letters

There’s a new bike rack down on Whiffin Spit parking lot.

What genius thought that one up?

It’s bad enough you took away most of the parking spots with those ‘No Parking’ yellow lines and an excessive number of handicapped spots that will see little use but why lose another parking space to a bike rack?

It could easily have been placed in the yellow No Parking zone and still leave plenty of room for service vehicles to pass through the blue gate.

And another thing… be sure and leave the bike rack painted black so one dark and stormy night someone can back their vehicle into it and sue the municipality.
