Public hearing on cycletrack on Herndon Parkway

The Town of Herndon Town Council will hold a Public Hearing on the draft Metrorail Area Plan. The plan includes cycle tracks on Herndon Parkway. The plan was approved by the Herndon Planning Commission on Oct. 3.

The meeting is on Tuesday, October 25th at 7:00 p.m., Ingram Council Chambers, 765 Lynn Street. Cyclists are encouraged to support the cycletrack plan. You can also submit comments online.

I read some press that said the business groups along Herndon Parkway do not want a cycletrack. Does anyone know why?
Not sure why, but business entities should be helped to understand the concept of "trail-oriented development" and how much money can come to a town which has safe, easy to ride bike facilities. A number of new case studies have been released lately.
I think Herndon has much to gain with a historic downtown with a popular trail running through the middle. Any cyclists will likely pass through the center of town, which would be great for local businesses.

I recommend that you submit feedback via email if you can't attend tonight. I received a follow-up note from a Council Member and a note from the Town Clerk in response to my email.
