APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - Appleton's common council has sent a proposal to remake a busy stretch of Mason Street back to committee.
On Wednesday night, council members delayed vote on the plan to add bike lanes on Mason between Northland and Prospect Avenues. The council moved to have the municipal services committee take a second look at the proposal.
The plan would have eliminated nearly all street parking along that part of Mason Street.
During Wednesday night's meeting, supporters said the lanes would make biking safer in the area. Opponents said removing the parking would hurt schools, churches and businesses on that street.
The committee is scheduled to take up the plan at its next meeting Tuesday evening.
