I think most locals will agree…the safety plan for Bike Fest was a success with both road fatalities and violent crime down this year.
People I have spoken to are describing the Memorial Day Weekend as quiet…and that says it all.
It took a lot of planning, dedication and money by city and county leaders to find a solution to last year's problems.
Consider This: Of course the plan was not perfect, there were still many complaints about the traffic loop, the noise and the crowds. But now it's time to look at those issues to see what worked, what didn't work and how to make next year even better for our visitors and local business owners and residents.
Despite all of the skepticism and criticism, I would like to say…job well done!
