Honorable Peter F. Murphy, Jr., Chair
Fairfax County Planning Commission
12000 Government Center Parkway, Suite 330

Dear Chair Murphy and members of the Fairfax County Planning Commission:

On behalf of the Town of Herndon and the residents we serve,I am writing to affirm the town’s support for the Fairfax County Bicycle Master Plan. On August 14, 2012, the Town of Herndon passed a resolution supporting the town’s inclusion in the county’s BicycleMasterPlan,along with several recommendations pertaining to the town. I have attached the 2012 certified resolution to this email for your information. We continue to support a Master Bicycle Plan for Fairfax County and agree with the Plan’s goals and objectives. Providing safe and expansive alternative travel facilities and encouraging more bicycle usage, especially for short trips, are important initiatives for jurisdictions within the metropolitan area.

Thank you for allowing us to provide our comments. The Town of Herndon looks forward to working cooperatively with Fairfax County to provide bike and trail facilities that enhance and encourage inter‐jurisdictional connectivity and access to transit.


Lisa C.Merkel
