First, some city worker decided to plant a pole in the pedestrian space on this sidewalk rather than putting it in the utility strip near the curb. Then, someone locked an exercise bike to the pole to take up a bit more of the sidewalk.
Hope the new city administration reads Jeff Speck's book, Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time, and starts thinking about how each small decision impacts pedestrians.
