We heard back from the office of Council Member Steve Fletcher regarding our recent email sharing our concerns:
"I had sent the video link to Business Licensing staff prior to your email on Friday, and did follow up with them again after that. They have previously issued warnings to Rick’s for their bike lane violations and such, and will be issuing a citation and fine after this incident. We will continue to look into how the City can make sure that Rick’s is operating appropriately and using the street appropriately. Please do follow up if you have any further questions or concerns."
The Situation at rick's
The 3rd Avenue and 3rd Street bike lanes were built to protect cyclists. Instead, they serve as a parking lot for the valet service at Rick's Cabaret and the hustle economy cars that drop off patrons.
