Bike meetings tonight - Bicycle Master Plan and Bikeshare feasibility in Reston

Fairfax County DOT is hosting two bike-related meetings tonight in Reston.

Reston Bikeshare Feasibility Study report: Learn about the feasibility of bikesharing in Reston at a community meeting tonight, Wed. June 25 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Dogwood Elementary School. Fairfax County recently contracted with a consultant to determine if bikesharing is feasible in Reston.  The final report will be released tonight. (Ignore the info on the county Bike Pages page that lists the date for the next bikeshare feasibility meeting as January 29.)

Bicycle Master Plan Final Draft: Immediately after the bikesharing meeting the county will present the final draft of the Fairfax County Bicycle Master Plan from 7:30-9:00 p.m. The plan has been under development for the past five years. Unfortunately the plan is not yet posted on the county website. We've been told the latest draft will be posted any day now on the Countywide Bicycle Master Plan page. The Tysons Bicycle Master Plan is posted but that plan has been merged with the countywide plan that will be released tonight. FABB has been urging the county to publish the draft plan and we hope it will be available soon.

Dogwood Elementary School is located not far from the Fairfax County Parkway Trail, the W&OD Trail, and the surrounding streets are very bike-friendly. Bike parking is located in the rear of the building. The racks are an unusual design that we've not seen before.

Town of Vienna Maple Ave Corridor zoning regulations: On a related note, the Town of Vienna Planning Commission is meeting tonight to consider forwarding the draft Maple Avenue Corridor zoning regulations to the Town Council. FABB and other cyclists have asked for sufficient bike parking regulations, similar to those in Tysons and Arlington. That meeting begins at 8pm at Town Hall.
