BP FOR BIKE SHARE
City Council members,
I am writing to express my support for Mayor Kriseman’s proposal to use $1M of the BP Oil lawsuit settlement to help fund a Bike Share program for our city. This modest investment would provide economical, emissions free, healthy transportation options for our residents. Additionally, Bike Share will provide an easy system of transportation for tourists to experience all our great city has to offer – from our local businesses and restaurants, to our arts districts and museums, historic neighborhoods, and the miles of waterfront parks along our beautiful bay – all while reducing automobile traffic and parking demands.
As a resident of St. Pete, I also believe Bike Share is important because… [insert personal message, optional]
As councilmembers, you have the opportunity to invest in a program that will benefit our city economically, make us healthier, less oil dependent, and increase our resiliency as a city and community. This is why I ask you to support the allocation of $1M of the BP Oil settlement for use on the proposed Bike Share program.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
