Regional Call to Action Summit

Today WABA announced the Regional Call to Action Summit to be held on November 3rd, 2011 in Arlington, VA. The Fairfax pre-meeting will be held on Monday, Oct. 17 from 6-8pm at Patrick Henry Library in Vienna, site of the monthly FABB meetings. Since there will not be pre-meetings in the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church or the towns of Vienna, Herndon, or Clifton, cyclists in those areas should plan to attend the Fairfax meeting:
Shape the next 5 years of bicycle advocacy in the Washington, DC region!

The Washington Area Bicyclist Association is pleased to announce its Regional Call to Action Summit on November 3rd, 2011 in Arlington, VA. At the Call to Action Summit, WABA will be presenting a five-year plan of regional and local priorities for bicycling in the Washington Region. The summit will include presentations on the Metro's long-term bicycle and pedestrian plans, health planning and bicycles, a panel discussion on the economics of the bicycle industry and much more.

We want your input on the regional plan!

1) Please attend a Local Stakeholder's Meeting

We will be holding short, two hour meetings in the six local jurisdictions that WABA serves in order to gather your ideas and give you--the region's local bicyclists--a chance to provide input for the regional plan. We ask attendees to please download and complete the Pre-Meeting Planning Sheet prior to the meeting.
  • 9/13 - Prince George's Co. - Greenbelt Library Aud., 6pm to 8pm
  • 9/20 - Montgomery Co. - Kensington Park Comm. Library, 6pm to 8pm
  • 9/27 - Arlington Co. - Shirlington Branch Library, 6:30pm to 8:30pm
  • 10/4 - Alexandria Co. - Nannie J Lee Rec. Center, 6:30pm to 8:30pm
  • 10/11 - District of Columbia - Benning Library, 6:00pm to 8:00pm
  • 10/17 - Fairfax Co. - Patrick Henry Library, Vienna, VA, 6:30pm to 8:30pm - More Info & RSVP
2) Can't make the local meeting?

The one page PDF planning sheet gives a basic framework for providing input for the five year regional priority plan we are creating. Whether you are at your local meeting or not, WABA and your fellow bike advocates want to hear from you!

Please submit your input by emailing by October 21st, 2011

We hope to see you at a local meeting or the Call to Action Summit on November 3rd.

Prince William and Loudoun Counties are also not included in the pre-meeting schedule and will likely not be included in the Summit. All the more reason for a VDOT NoVa District bicycle advisory committee which would help coordinate bicycle projects in the greater Northern Virginia region.

Update: The time for the Fairfax meeting was listed incorrectly earlier. The meeting is from 6:30-8:30pm
