Bike-friendly, sustainable redevelopment project struggles to get the green light

A sustainable redevelopment project lead by bike shop owner Jackie Green is struggling to get the green light. The rejection of the Clifton project is a decision for less affordable housing, for greater automobile dependency, for the destruction of farm, field, forest and floodplain, for a hotter city, for more flooding, etc.. The project adds 24 residential units and more commercial space. It sports indoor, safe, clean parking for 80 bicycles and is a half block from three TARC routes in one of Louisville’s most walkable neighborhoods. It saves the old USPO building while introducing car-free customers and employees for local businesses.

Prosecutors have dropped two traffic violations against bicyclist Jackie Green, who has for two years fought charges of running a red light and blocking motor vehicles by not using a designated bike lane. Green had sought to make his case a broader appeal for a more bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly approach to transportation in Louisville, and on Tuesday, he declared a total victory – even as he acknowledged one charge was dropped only after he agreed to take a traffic safety class. “The case established two big wins for the cycling community,” Green said. “The first win acknowledged that cyclists do not have to use bicycle lanes. The second win established that cyclists may take measures at intersections to increase their safety, regardless the color of the traffic signal.” Josh Abner, the spokesman for the county attorney’s office, acknowledged that prosecutors were not able to meet requirements for a successful charge of obstructing a road. That left the traffic light charge, which he said was eligible for dismissal following participation in a driver safety program. Green participated in the program, and upon its completion, that traffic light charge was dropped. Abner also pointed to a ruling in the case a year ago by Judge Eric Haner that found cyclists were not exempt from the charges. Regardless, Green...
