Golf carts on the streets in Hillyard?

There's a proposal being floated by Hillyard Futures (and supported widely by local business organizations) that would allow golf carts on streets posted at 25 mph within the area between Division and Havana, and Francis and Euclid.
The carts would not be allowed on Division, Nevada, Lincoln Road or any other arterials within that area.
Liberty Park has had a golf cart ordinance since 2006 and Deer Park added one a bit later.
Included in the proposal are seperate lanes, painted on the roads that are wide enough, to be reserved for the carts.
Thoughts? Is this a good idea? How do you feel about neighborhood cart zones?
