[BIKEIOWA note - this is an excerpt from the Ames City Council meeting on March 6th 2019]

The request for an increase in bicycle parking was also discussed within the council. Parking would be increased with commercial and industrial buildings, but it would be more complicated to apply it to residential buildings. The request is to reduce automobile parking to increase bicycle parking.

“If we are going to be a biking community, it should be predictable that I can arrive at a destination with a reasonable expectation of a place to secure my bike,” Ames city councilman Chris Nelson said.

The council decided to offer an option for substitution to the Ames Department of Planning and Housing. The topic will be further discussed at a later date.
