Merrifield Town Center development meeting

From the February 2007 Providence District Council Newsletter:
On Monday February 26th, 7:30p at the Dunn Loring Center the Merrifield Mixed Use/Town Center developer will give a presentation of their revised development plan of 80+ acres. This area includes the Merrifield theaters, south of Lee Highway and west to Eskridge Rd. The Planning Commission public hearing for this application is scheduled for April 25, 2007.
This development is a short bike ride from the Dunn Loring Metro station. As the Dunn Loring/Merrifield area grows, it's important that proper bicycle facilities be provided. There are currently plans for an on-road bike route along Gallows Rd from Tysons to Merrifield.

The proposed development is adjacent to Eskridge Rd which turns into Merrilee Dr on the other side of Lee Hwy (Rt. 29). This developer should provide an on-road bike route along Eskridge Rd and Merrilee Dr, including a bike-friendly crossing of Lee Hwy. Bike parking is needed throughout the development as well as a bicycle connection to the future Gallows Rd. bike lanes.

Bicyclists are encouraged to attend the Feb. 26 Providence District Council meeting and the April 25 Planning Commission meeting to speak out for bicycle facilities in this area.
