As far as the proposed upgraded bike lanes, I saw no mention as far as the pedestrians who use and are entitled to use the sidewalks/crosswalks. On the street where I live, on Centre Street, there are bike lanes, but oftentimes, especially at night, they (riders) don’t even bother to use the designated bike lanes, but just zoom down the street, carefree as can be. Pedestrians have rights too, especially older adults. Older adults pay taxes too, especially the high-income older adults. The town planners/folks who want to be reelected by older taxpayers would do well to pay attention to that fact.
