Kathleen Bracke, with transportation: We just want to make sure there's enough time to do a robust process, reach out to groups in community, work with boards/commissions.
"The concern is short-changing it and not having enough time to get all stakeholders involved."
Why was TAB not brought in earlier?
Isn't that bc companies dumped a bunch of scooters on the sidewalks in the city? Carlisle asks.
(Boulder took a similar approach with dockless bikes, if I remember correctly.)
"I would like to see them with a legal place to operate," along with other "micromobility" options. (bikes and scooters, mainly, but also things like Boosted boards.
Moratorium is "a bad idea for a number of reasons." Wants a pilot program instead.
"Let's get there quickly. Let's move forward with regulations and a small pilot."
Meneghel: Let's look at what's working in other cities. A lot of cities didn't do this right right away. But they're doing it now.
Maybe choose a business park, launch 20 scooters, set up geofencing, look at how it works, Kemp says.
And Meneghel's to set up a pilot at, say, 55th/Arapahoe, to see if they get used for first/last mile, bc staff's memo says they are used primarily on Friday, weekends... not for commuting.
Carr: No; it's just on giving business licenses to operators.
Am I missing any? It's hard to remember.

This is not a punitive moratorium bc it's not taking away any rights that are already a right. It's about who gets to eventually do this thing that isn't legal yet
"That's the limit on the creek path," Weaver says.
Nine-month moratorium in place.
