State of the County - Transportation

Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Sharon Bulova recently gave her annual State of the County address. With the continuing economic downturn, the county expects "a projected shortfall for Fiscal Year 2011 of $316 million dollars. Schools—which make up 53.8% of the County's Budget—project a shortfall of $176 million."

She also discussed the Board's recently adopted Goals and Priorities. We're pleased to see bicycling listed first:
No. 6—Efficient Transportation Network. Fairfax County makes it a priority to connect People and Places. We will continue to plan for and invest in transportation improvements to include comprehensive bicycle and pedestrian initiatives, bus and para transit, road and intersection improvements and expansion of Metrorail and VRE.
