Environmental Quality Advisory Council public hearing

The Fairfax County Environmental Quality Advisory Council (EQAC) is a citizens group that provides advice to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. They publish an extensive Annual Report on the Environment. In the 2007 Annual Report, on pp. 47-48 of the Land Use and Transportation section, is information about the County's comprehensive bicycle initiative, for which FABB lobbied heavily among Board members.

EQAC is holding their annual public hearing on Tuesday, December 11, 2007
starting at 7:30 p.m. in rooms 2 and 3 of the Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax. Cyclists are encouraged to attend and discuss the need for better bicycle facilities in the county to allow more people to get out of their cars and onto bicycles. Bicycles are the most efficient form of transportation invented by man. Their use generates no greenhouse gases and they provide exercise opportunities for an increasingly overweight population. Many of our local trips of 5 miles or less can easily be made by bicycle given adequate facilities, both on- and off-road. You can also send comments to
