• Don’t miss another chance to speak out for better bike parking!

Because of a problem with a faulty zoom link to the last Parking Reimagined meeting, Fairfax County staff scheduled an additional, final virtual open house to discuss the project on January 31 at 7:00 pm.

As we wrote earlier, the County Planning staff has proposed setting the number of bicycle parking spaces based on either 5%, 10%, or 15% of the required number of vehicle parking spaces based on land use intensity. Under the proposals, more dense areas would have higher bicycle parking minimums.

Learn more about the county’s proposals by examining these Parking Reimagined documents.

We strongly support the bike parking requirements and are asking that minimum bike parking for multifamily residents be increased.

In addition to increased minimums for residential areas, riders should ask for the revised ordinance to state bike parking requirements for schools, recreation centers, and libraries and that planning documents need to include bike parking tabulations and the locations of bike parking and signage.

FABB encourages riders who were unable to attend one of the earlier meetings to participate in this virtual open house, support the plan, and request higher bike parking minimums.
