New bike/ped staff person at Fairfax CountyWe've heard that Fairfax County DOT have hired a new bicycle (and pedestrian) staff person to work in the county bike program. Her name is Vanessa Aguayo. According to the county bike coordinator, "She has an engineering background, comes to us from the private sector, and has lots of experience in designing bike and pedestrian projects as well as traffic calming." A similar position was held by Jeff Hermann, who has moved within the department.
This is a critical time for the county; the bicycle master plan was recently completed and will need extensive staff work when it is presented to the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors later this year or the first of next year.
We look forward to working with Ms. Aguayo in the near future. She is planning to attend the FABB meeting on Wednesday which will be a good opportunity for us to get to know her.
