Raising Funds for Bike Path at UC Santa Barbara
This is an interesting story being reported in the May 2004 QUICK RELEASE, the newsletter of the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition:
Students vote for bikes
Students at UCSB recently voted for an assessment of $3 per student/quarter through summer of 2007 to pay for a new campus bikepath. The path, costing an estimated $500,000, will provide a missing link in the bikepath network.
The initiative was sponsored by the Associated Students BIKES committee headed by Edward France. The 120-yard path will serve not only students traveling between Chemistry and Engineering, but also other bicyclists coming from the Obern Trail and wishing to connect to the UCen, the "Pardall Corridor" bikepath, and Isla Vista.
Initial work could begin this summer with moving a trailer and landscaping, but the actual path may wait until 2005. At the same time, students voted to continue supporting the Associated Students' Bike Shop with a $0.75/student quarter fee.
