“He put posters on the walls of the conference room, representing the four proposed designs. The members of the committee discussed and scored elements of each one.

The alternatives are:

1). The Wide Sidewalks Alternative. This one has a one-way bike lane on Folsom and a one-way bike lane on Howard
2). The Bicycle Connectivity Alternative. This one has a two-way bike lane on one side of both Folsom and Howard
3). The Transit Focused Alternative. It has a red-striped bus lane on Folsom and one-way bike lanes on both.
