BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The feud over bike lanes in the Hundred Oaks Neighborhood reached a new pitch at a meeting held Monday night.

People had no problem raising their voices at Ingleside United Methodist on the corner of Ingleside and Capital Heights.  

They were discussing the issue of people parking cars in the bike lanes in front of their homes and getting ticketed.

City leaders held the meeting after homeowners started a petition to keep from being penalized. That petition has been sent to the city for review. Another petition has been started by cyclists who wants to keep the bike lanes as they are.

"Occasionally the residents can park. They don't park there every day anyway, so I was trying to find a neutral ground to help them to find that compromise," said East Baton Rouge Metro Councilwoman C. Denise Marcelle. "We kind of got, sort of like there. We got some understanding here tonight. We didn't get all the way there, but we're well on the way to working this out."

Marcelle said what comes next is a sit down between a smaller number of representatives from the neighborhood and cycling community, along with DPW, the city attorney and Metro council members.
