You are covering Corando with paint stripe pollution
The grafitti on the streets does not help our property values
It brings to mind the visual cacophony that will look like, if you look there long enough it will induce a dizying type of vertigo
these BLACK streets with these brilliant WHITE lines, because believe me it takes away from your home, from your outlook on life
for me its very similar to personally taking all three of my daughters to a tattoo parlour and having them completely body tattooed
The citizens of Coronado have decided collectively they don't want bike lanes on their streets. The actual reasons for opposing bike lanes matter less than the fact that they can choose to oppose them being implemented by their city. The fact that the mayor has conceded to their demands shows that they have the backing of the majority of the residents. Bike lanes are a privilege, not a right.
There, that's all the justification anyone needs. Also, its not like the bike lanes had been there for decades and are now being removed for arbitrary reasons. The bike lanes are being added, pro-bike lane advocates are the ones who need to justify and defend their position.
If that's the case then why haven't the pro-bike lane people done this?
>There, that's all the justification anyone needs.
Will bike paths lower property values?
If so, how?
>If that's the case then why haven't the pro-bike lane people done this?
I said back down at any complaint, not stand firm with any support
you could have 100 people saying yay and 5 old biddies saying nay and they'll listen to the 5
How will bike paths increase property values? If you are proposing something that costs taxpayer money to implement you have to defend and justify your position. Do you not understand that?
Also, its pretty obvious that most of the pro-bike lane advocates in Coronado aren't actual residents of the city but rather freds from the surrounding metropolitan area who want more bike lanes so they can more comfortably practice their hobby on weekends. If actual residents were pro-bike lane they would show up to those city council meetings to challenge those opposed to the plan. The fact that they didn't show up to advocate their position speaks volumes.
>Also, its pretty obvious that most of the pro-bike lane advocates in Coronado aren't actual residents of the city but rather freds from the surrounding metropolitan area who want more bike lanes so they can more comfortably practice their hobby on weekends.
So they're people who want to come to Coronado and spend their money in Coronado and pay Coronado business for goods & services?
I don't have to, the people have spoken and you still don't understand the concept that the person proposing something is the one that has to justify it. Sorry you couldn't implement your tyranny of the minority in Coronado, better luck next time. :^)
>implying recreational cyclists spend any money in Coronado
Show proof that more bike lanes = more money. Again, you are proposing something, justify it.
>I don't have to, the people have spoken and you still don't understand the concept that the person proposing something is the one that has to justify it.
And the person proposing not to does as well
>Sorry you couldn't implement your tyranny of the minority in Coronado, better luck next time. :^)
See, thats proof you're wrong.
Cause people can just say whatever and they're right.
>Show proof that more bike lanes = more money
Show proof bike lanes = decreased property value
If its true the bikers are all from out of town then when they come into town they will spend money
I agree with increased public spending on quality bike infrastructure, but the anti- poster is presenting a much more sound argument.
>And the person proposing not to does as well
No they don't. Please read up on the null hypothesis and the burden of proof.
Residents will live longer due to the health benefits of cycling, and have less children due to impotence. They will also attract all of their cyclist friends. These cyclists will grow old, and stay in their houses to the very end, because they won't be forced into a retirement home by poor health.
At the same time, they will turn the town into a hotbed of extremist ideologies, focusing on sustainability and moderation instead of conspicuous consumption. Their houses will be crusty, their yards unfashionable, and the streets will smell of compost.
Yes he does. The plans to paint stripes were in place and the city had every intention of executing those plans. Passivity would result in bike lanes. What the antis wanted was for the plans to change, which in this context was an active course deviation. In the video they use the expression "put on the brakes", which is a positive action, not a passive one, in the same way that a request to stop a moving train is what needs to be justified. It is not up to the other passengers to explicitly voice why the train should keep going to its intended destination.
Also, the null hypothesis usually refers to a general statement or default position that there is no relationship between two measured phenomena, or no difference among groups. That is to say, in this context: there is no relationship between stripes on the streets and the value of the adjoining properties. The burden of proof is on anyone who claims that one affect the other.
