The meeting will feature a presentation by Adam Lind, Fairfax County’s Bicycle Program Manager, on the implementation of the county’s Bicycle Master Plan in the district. In addition, other speakers will provide reports on bicycling-related developments and events. There also will be an open discussion period to allow Mt. Vernon residents to raise issues about improving local bicycle access and safety.
The Mt. Vernon Government Center Community Meeting Room is accessible by Metro using Huntington Station (Yellow Line) and Bus #161 or #162.
February’s meeting is part of FABB's effort to better serve and represent cyclists and other supporters throughout the county. During 2016 FABB plans to hold monthly meetings in all of the county’s districts. If you would like to assist in setting up the program for the meeting in your district, please contact Steve Ward at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prince William held a post storm community meeting last Saturday, 6 Feb. The blockage of crosswalks, sidewalks, ADA ramps, and bike trails was the main issue discussed. WJLA was there and did a story that focused on the pedestrian issues. Active Prince William has a post on their blog about the issue, including the video from WJLA news story at http://activepw.org/blog/
