Blogger files appeal against motion to dissolve bike plan injunction

The injunction against San Francisco’s bike plan will continue, at least for a few more weeks.

Rob Anderson, a local blogger and founder of the Coalition For Adequate Review, the group responsible for postponing the implementation of San Francisco’s ambitious bike plan, has filed a petition against The City Attorney’s motion to dismiss the injunction. The City Attorney’s Office had sought to dissolve the injunction before the scheduled hearing on November 2.

The City Attorney now has until October 28 to reply to Anderson’s petition, which was formally submitted by his attorney today.

The bike plan, which will add 34 miles of new cycling lanes to San Francisco, passed a major hurdle in June when it was approved by The City’s Planning Commission.

If the injunction is lifted on November 2, city officials can immediately begin implementing the bike plan, which was first approved by the Board of Supervisors and Mayor Gavin Newsom in 2005. Anderson filed suit against the plan, with a judge supporting his claim that The City did not undergo proper environmental studies before approving the proposal.
