Tysons Task Force Chairman is a bicyclist

Clark Tyler, chairman of the Tysons Land Use Task Force, has a difficult job. Over the course of three years he has chaired the group that is developing recommendations for the future of Tysons Corner in light of the proposed four Tysons Metro stations. We strongly support this effort to make Tysons a bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly place. We sit on the task force and know the amount of hard work that Clark and other task force members have done over the years.

Clark recently sent a letter to the editor of the Fairfax Times entitled “Just who is the Tysons Task Force?”. Last year Clark joined the tour of Tysons sponsored by FABB and had such a good time that he bought a bike and has been riding with his wife along some of the trails in the county.

We were pleased to see Clark say in the article that among other things, he's a bicyclist. The chairman, for instance, is semi-retired, president of an adjoining HOA, an employee of a Tysons business, and a bicyclist, and has a background in transit and economic development.

Maybe there is hope for Tysons after all.
