Falls Church bicycle and Safe Routes to School plans

The City of Falls Church is developing a Pedestrian, Bicycle and Traffic Calming Strategic Implementation Plan. The plan will:
• Create a well-connected walkway system
• Afford accessibility for all pedestrians
• Provide safe streets and crossings
• Promote a culture of walking and biking
• Identify continuous sustained funding, tools, and leadership for implementing  pedestrian and bicycle improvements
According to the City website:
Earlier this year (2010), the City hosted an interative online tool to receive citizen input for this plan. The results have been tallied and summarized. To view the results visit this page.

Data collection is expected to be completed in 2010. Community meetings will be scheduled this winter/early spring. Additional comments can be sent to Wendy Block Sanford - wblocksanford@fallschurchva.gov.
There is also a committee developing a Safe Routes to School Plan. KLS Engineering is the consultant helping with the plan. Read a summary document on the Falls Church SRTS plan, which includes good information about implementing a SRTS program and applying for a Virginia SRTS grant. Guidelines for 2010 grants are on hold until a new SRTS coordinator is hired by VDOT.
