To Whom it may concern.
I think that renovating the gym would be a better option. Even though building new separate lanes for bikers would slightly improve road safety, adding a swimming pool and spa centre would offer more practical benefits for the local people.
First, the gym is the only facility in the city where people can relax after work or during the weekends. Workout has become an essential part of people’s daily routine. Recently, few of the treadmills were broken, and there weren’t enough gym amenities for the rest of the people that wanted to exercise. Therefore, renovating the gym would fix and add more amenities and provide people with the opportunity to expand their workout by going swimming.
Second, the spa centre offers a variety of massage therapies that are suitable for everyone. Individuals could attend the spa and get the much-needed relaxation massage to reduce stress after a long working day. The spa would also offer customized therapies for people who exercise regularly to relax the muscles.
Considering these reasons, I believe that renovating the gym would a better choice. Everyone in the city would be overjoyed.

To whom it may concern,
Personally, ‘I think a new bike lane is a better choice. Even though our gym needs renovation, it would be more beneficial to have a bike lane in our city.
Firstly, Having separate lanes for biker would offer safety. It will lower down the risk of an accident on the road. I rode a bike going to work, and I noticed some road rage regarding the rights of cars and bikers.
Secondly, Having a bike lane will invite many people to use bikes rather than a vehicle. People would be more healthy and fit riding a bike and less traffic to our small town.
Considering these reasons, I think a separate bike lane is more practical to have in our city. this is my personal opinion, but I will support whatever decision is made.
Thank you for allowing me to provide input on this matter.
