Last night, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the county’s first-ever bicycle master plan! The Greater Washington DC Safe Routes to School Regional Network provided comments and Bill Sadler, regional policy manager, was there to provide testimony. In all, 17 people came and spoke in favor of the plan. This plan would not be possible without strong support from the Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling (FABB), Fairfax County transportation planners and many others.
Passing this plan is just one step in making Fairfax County a safer place to bike. Implementation is key, especially getting the funding to build and maintain the infrastructure outlined in the plan. We look forward to working with Fairfax County as it executes the vision and goals of this plan.
