From the Next Great City newsletter:
Since Mayor Nutter took office, the Streets Department has installed over 1,400 bike racks as part of an Adopt-a-Rack program. The program provides a city installed u-shaped bike rack to community groups and individuals that accept maintenance responsibility for the rack. Thanks to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the U.S. Department of Energy is funding a new round of the Adopt-a-Rack program. The department expects to be able to install about 500 additional racks through the program.
