Upon doing a little research, we found that the City of Garland has taken some steps towards revitalization and promoting alternative forms of transportation. The Envision Garland plan was just passed this year by City Council and is expected to run through 2030. Sections 6-5 to 6-9 of the plan describe a goal of having complete streets and wider sidewalks for pedestrian use as well as bike lanes.
The section of redevelopment of certain buildings describe that these buildings will have to be brought up to code to accommodate mixed use for office and retail space. It doesn't clarify whether they will use single use zoning practices if the buildings cannot be brought up to code.

Let's make it clear that we need these sections of the plan to be implemented sooner than 2030. We can best represent the demand by letting our bicycles do the talking.
