The Baltimore City Council voted unanimously Monday to repeal parts of the fire code that officials say were preventing the creation of bike lanes and new development projects.
The measure now goes to the desk of Mayor Catherine Pugh.
James Bentley, a spokesman for the mayor, said she is still reviewing it.
“Her only stance is that citizens be able to reside safely in their communities,” Bentley said.
For months, the city’s fire department has been at odds with cycling advocates and developers over whether city streets are wide enough to accommodate their projects and large pieces of fire equipment.
