Fairfax Co Budget Town Hall meetings

Fairfax County is holding Town Hall meetings around the county to review the FY 2012 Proposed Budget. Cyclists should attend to ask about funding for bicycle projects and to speak out in support of of the bicycle coordinator position and his operating budget. FABB will be testifying at the formal budget hearings at the end of March. See the county budget page for detailed info.

Bicycling is part of the Board Goals & Priorities: "Efficient transportation network—Fairfax County makes it a priority to connect People and Places. We will continue to plan for and invest in transportation improvements to include comprehensive bicycle and pedestrian initiatives, bus and para transit, road and intersection improvements and expansion of Metrorail and VRE." Fortunately there is funding this year for the Countywide Bicycle Master Plan which will commence in the near future.
