Re: “Boise City Council to Hear Proposed Electric Bike Rules, Asks for Public Comment

I have 3 bikes: mountain, electric and Fat. Electric as I live up an extremely steep hill. My electric bike is my suburban errand/grocery shopping bike, it has a tacky milk crate on the back. Even though it has a battery assist, it is still exercise; it weighs 90 lbs. I ride it frequently downtown. Top speed is 15 mph, which I almost never hit. Same thin skiing, I am slow. I ride it on the greenbelt occasionally to get from store to store. I very occasionally ride on sidewalks(never in the downtown core area) when it is patently unsafe to be on a street w/o bike lane infrastructure, such as Fort Street. I am always courteous to pedestrians, and yield to them. I am a pedestrian and car driver also. I believe electric bikes can and should be accommodated in Boise.

Re: “A Bishop and a Burro Walk Into the Foothills

Commerce doesn't belong in the foothills, period. Open space is fine the way it is.

Re: “Dry Creek, Dry Purse

Ada County Commissioners remain short-sighted. I am an Ada county taxpayer, and am happy to have my tax dollars support the Ada SWCD.

Re: “'Is Pengilly's Still Open?' Marathon City Council Session on St. Luke's Plan Wraps With No Deliberation

City Council needs to vote against St. Lukes current plan, and send them back to the drawing board. I attended the last hearing, and was highly impressed with David Allison's presentation. His examples of other regional medical centers meshed with Boise city goals: green, connected streets, livability AND top-notch health care. Especially impressive were the examples of street-level commerce, welcoming all citizens to the center, not just patients.

I have cycled through St. Elizabeth Hospital in Portland. We were riding on city streets and found ourselves in the center of the complex by happenstance. It was beautiful, functional, connected and welcoming to all: pedestrians, cyclists and patients. Boise deserves this and more.

A neighborhood does not have to be destroyed and a street does not have to be closed to have cutting-edge health care. St. Lukes is choosing not to follow Blueprint Boise, instead they would create a massive island with traffic counts equal to Milwaukee and Franklin.
