Proposed ordinance would require showers, bicycle stalls for Minneapolis developments

Body: 

There’s already a rule in Minneapolis that if developers want to construct large commercial buildings downtown, they have to include bicycle parking spaces, showers and lockers.

City Council Member Gary Schiff (Ward 9) wants to extend that ordinance to developments outside of downtown.

“We want to make sure they are built in a way to accommodate bike commuters,” said Schiff, who noted that surveys show people who often want to bike to work are dissuaded by not having a place to change clothes.
