Delray group wants to make streets safer for bikers and walkers - Sun Sentinel

A group of Delray residents are working on increasing pedestrian and bicycle access and safety in Delray Beach. The group thinks that some areas are just plain too dangerous in their present condition. Click title for link. From the article:
Jestena Boughton, owner of the Colony Hotel downtown, agrees more bike lanes would not only help bikers, but strollers.
She said she is tired of watching the sidewalk war between walkers and those on two wheels.
Bastian hopes the city will allocate more money to adding sidewalks and put less into parking garages.
He sees linking landmarks, restaurants and shopping centers via sidewalks as aesthetically pleasing and convenient for all types of transportation.
"This is going to have a great impact," he said.
