Decoro redemption

The city of Santa Clarita should be commended for their about-face on the striping of Decoro to add bicycle lanes. The residents showed up in force at a community meeting and voiced their collective frustrations to the city's leaders. Surprisingly, they listened.

Decoro will be re-striped to two lanes in each direction, including a bicycle lane. Smoother traffic flows should result from this design.
One has to wonder though, how much money was wasted by the city not holding community meetings prior to the initial restriping project.

At a time when the state of the economy has caused city budgets to be cut, all decisions should be well thought out prior to any funding allocation being approved.

I hope the city leaders have learned a valuable lesson, albeit at the expense of the residents.
