    We need a Capital Bikeshare station (a big one) on the street (near a bumpout) on the south side of the O St Giant, or across 7th St adjacent to the Kennedy Rec Center, on O St, to serve shoppers, local residents, coffee drinkers, tourists at the new hotel. It’s kind of a no-brainer. The city should help with this one, since it will help mitigate car parking pressures in a popular area where car parking drives some people CARazy.
