Update 4/23/14 at 10:30 am:

A business owner who's asking the city to modify a plan to install protected bike lanes on Central Parkway is now offering to raise private money to assist with the project.  

Tim Haines wants to preserve on-street parking in front of his building. He's asking council members to support Vice Mayor David Mann's compromise motion introduced Tuesday.  It would take the bike lanes out of the travel lanes on Central Parkway and place them closer to the sidewalk on a separate path between Ravine and Brighton Streets.
