Tysons workshops

We attended the Monday night public workshop on the Tysons test land use scenarios. Being on the task force, we facilitated one of the break-out sessions. The sessions were centered around a number of questions about road improvements, pedestrian and bicycle access, public facilities, housing, etc. During the summary session, all of the groups mentioned the importance of pedestrian and bicycle access. Most groups said they would assign a large portion of public and private funds to building new facilities for bicyclists and pedestrians.

Thanks to all bicyclists who attended the sessions. We can make a difference. There is one more session tonight, for the Providence District at Marshall HS, 7731 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, VA 22043. We hope cyclists attend to discuss the need for better bicycle facilities in Tysons.

Please consider filling out the questionnaire available on the Tysons task force web site. Let the task force know that you want Routes 7 and 123 to be more bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly, and that you want more resources devoted to creating better bicycle facilities in Tysons. The questionnaire must be submitted by August 3.
