The proponents of the bike area were always honest, fair and willing to compromise. The effort was intended to benefit the children and families of Katonah. No members of the bike area were financial supporters of Mr. Burdick. All were highly respectful of the wonderful job done by the parks and recreation department. This effort was designed to bring the community together and provide local kids with a safe place to ride their bikes, at no added expense to the taxpayers. It was hijacked by an opposition that was less than honest and more than divisive. This should have been easy, but instead became an example of entitlement and incompetence run amok.
