Tysons plan meeting tomorrow night

After nearly 5 years of work, Fairfax County staff have completed the final draft of proposed Comprehensive Plan language [PDF] for redevelopment of Tysons into a compact, walkable, bikeable, liveable place. The Planning Commission Tysons Corner Committee is holding a public meeting tomorrow, January 27 to solicit input on the plan language. The meeting is at 7:00 pm in Conference Rooms 4/5 at the Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, near Fair Oaks Mall. See the Bicycle Network language.

If you live or work in or near Tysons, now is your chance to weigh in on proposed changes. New bike parking requirements, based on those in Arlington County, are included in the plan. An extensive network of on-road bike routes, mostly bike lanes, are planned for many of the streets in Tysons. FABB strongly supports these improvements. We are concerned that no bike facilities are planned for Routes 7 & 123 in the heart of Tysons. If cyclists end up using sidepaths near the stations, there would be too many conflicts with pedestrians; on-road facilities or separated bike facilities are needed.

There will be another public meeting on Feb. 11 (see FABB Events page for more info). There will also be formal public hearings before the Planning Commission (March 24) and the Board of Supervisors (May 25). See the Tysons Study website for more info.
