The group calling itself the “Citizens for an Open Greenbelt” (COG) is planning a “demonstration of outrage” at Garden City along the greenbelt at the northwest corner of Glenwood and Riverside Drive (near the Moxie Java) on August 13.
Organizer Gary Segers said the plan is to to tell Garden City “enough is enough – open the bike path now to bike riders as it was intended since 1980.”
COG has been fighting Garden City since 2007 to allow bike riding along the bike path in Riverside Village. COG filed a lawsuit against Garden City in 2010 and a court date has been set for February 21, 2012.
He encourages interested citizens to bring their bikes to show Garden City officials they should not prohibit access to bikes on the greenbelt.
