Chestnut and 36th do not have dedicated bicycle lanes, they have shared lane markings, or "sharrows." Sharrows do not demonstrably increase bicycling. There's certainly room for sharrows on Roland with reverse angle parking, but there is not room for dedicated bicycle lanes, which it currently has. I'm all for the parking task force's plans to increase bicycle parking, but my point stands about downgrading the quality of bicycle infrastructure.
This is a great write-up, but like the last one, you left out the fact that bringing reverse angle parking to Roland would necessitate removal of bicycle lanes. Removing facilities that encourage alternatives to driving in the neighborhood is not a good approach to diminish a parking problem.
