Snow summit

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will hold a Snow Summit to "focus on this winter's snow and assess both what worked well and what did not at the state - Virginia Department of Transportation - and county levels. The lessons learned from this summit will be invaluable not only for the next snow storm, but for any emergency."

If you have ideas about what local government can do to help bicyclists after the next big snowstorm, now is the time to send them to the Board. On the Snow Summit webpage you can "Write about your experiences with the storms and how they impacted your family, neighborhood and/or business." (tell us) or provide a "new idea." The top list of new ideas is:
  • 48 (number of responses) - Require Sidewalk Shoveling
  • 44 - Map with location of fire hydrants
  • 37 - Better Web Information Services
  • 34 - Come up with "snow emergency" parking and ticketing rules
  • 30 - Clearing streets vs. clearing sidewalks
The county has done a good job of using crowdsourcing tools to gather this info.

Update: Details about the Snow Summit:
  • Tuesday, March 16, 2010 at 3:30 p.m.
  • Fairfax County Government Center
  • Board Auditorium
  • 12000 Government Center Parkway
  • Fairfax, VA
