Despite overwhelming support of the bikeshare station at Riverdale park (721/739 or 97.5% of residents said it was okay), the Cabbagetown North Heritage Conservation District want the bikeshare station at Riverdale Park gone because it “interferes with the character, rhythm and overall setting” of Cabbagetown.
Who wants to break it to them that all their cars parked all over the place do this? Not a few bikes.
I was able to grab the below screenshot of the public survey results:
Back in November, the Cabbagetown Residents Association conducted an online survey after two residents launched the first historic petards at the bikes, with complaints that stated, in part, “the park should not be dumping grounds for the latest trend from city hall.” Of the 739 who responded to the survey, 721 were in favour of the current location, with only 16 wanting the bike station removed, and two people choosing somewhere else entirely. Undaunted by the survey results, the heritage committee, made up of Cabbagetown residents, launched another volley.
