new Whole Foods store needs bike racks

I checked out the new Whole Foods store at Evergreen Plaza over the weekend - nice addition. For me, it's the highlight of an otherwise lame and totally car-centric makeover of the plaza.

In spite of letters to the developer, they maxed out the parking and made no real accommodations for anyone accessing the Plaza on foot or bike. If crossing Western between stoplights is too daunting, accessing from 99th (to Campbell, Artesian or Maplewood) by bike is very doable.

Once you get there, you'll find that there are no bike racks anywhere - except right next to Starbucks. Want to help change this? Please send a message to Whole Foods and ask them to add bike racks in front of the store. Thousands of people live within easy walking and biking distance of this store, and making non-car options easier could mean less traffic and less stress in getting around.
