____ NC/CC opposes the IKE program as present in Council File 22-1154 for the following reasons:

  • There is no local competitive bidding process.
  • This project needs a financial analysis, as it is using public space to generate revenue.
  • This project has negative environmental impacts and there is no environmental review (CEQA).
  • This project creates visual pollution and takes away space on the sidewalk that could be used for trees.
  • This project is a source of driver distraction, which is contrary to the City’s Vision Zero policy.
