These are our public spaces. The city needs to treat them with care and consideration. And they need to consult with us before they make changes, especially rude and abrupt ones like this nasty fence.

If the community wants to change a public space to enhance safety, accessibility, or quality of life, like installing a signalized crosswalk or a separated bike lane, it has to engage in years of sustained advocacy in the face of bureaucratic inertia.

If the city wants to change a public space to restrict our movement and reduce its potential liability, it happens in a flash, with no prior warning or consultation.
