Should the city of Sunset Hills be more bicycle friendly? If so, what would you propose?

Baebler said, "Yes, I believe we can do more. We have some challenges in Sunset Hills because of our infrastructure. However, there is a challenge that the city of St. Louis is participating in called Mayor's Challenge for Safer People, Safer Streets. I would like to see this initiative reviewed by our Public Works and Parks departments to see if it might work well for Sunset Hills. Our Parks Department is actively engaged in looking at programs that will further protect pedestrians and bicyclists in Sunset Hills."

Werner said, "I have not studied the majority of streets in Sunset Hills to make an informed decision on the safety of bicyclists/motorists. But I do believe we have options with which to work toward a more bicycle friendly city."

MoBikeFed comment: Since Mayor Mark Furrer was charged with a felony for deliberately striking a bicyclist in Sunset Hills, the issue of the city's bicycle friendliness has come to the fore.

As noted in this article, Dee Baebler has been one of the most consistent voices on the City Council pushing the city in the direction of becoming more bicycle friendly and working consistently for solutions that work for the city and its residents.
