from the 'burbs of the great city of St. Louis

"The City of O'Fallon has approved a measure requiring provision for bicycle parking in commercial areas, office buildings, and schools:
Aldermen last week approved a new off-street parking law that, among other things, requires builders to provide at least one four-space bicycle rack for every 15 required parking spaces.

The law covers commercial, office, institutional, educational and recreational uses.

The city's Planning and Zoning Commission has required the bike-rack placements for a little over a year, said David Woods, the city's director of planning and development.

But the new law puts it in writing."

those four-space bicycle racks cost about $80 apiece and are popping up all over tremont....
