Fairfax County budget meetings

Fairfax County is holding budget meetings around the county over the next couple of weeks. Below is a list of all scheduled meetings to discuss the budget and allow citizens to comment.

The FY2014 Fairfax County Budget was recently released. There appear to be no operating funds for the bicycle program. There are considerable funds for bike facilities in Tysons and Reston for improving access to the new Silver Line stations.

We plan to testify at the main public hearing before the Board of Supervisors in April (9-11) to ask for funds to implement a program for reporting aggressive drivers. We will also ask for funding for BikeFairfax, modeled on BikeArlington, to encourage more people to travel by bike. See our blog post on Supervisor McKay's direction to staff to "investigate if this model would work for Fairfax County and help us achieve some of the goals of our Fairfax County Bicycle Plan."

To speak at these town hall meetings, just show up. You can sign up online to speak at the April 9-11 Board of Supervisor budget meetings.
