September is always special for us - we do on-sites to mix it up a bit. So this month, we'll be on-site on Quincy St where the County should be putting in a protected bike lane... sometime.

Monday, September 12. 7pm. Meet in front of the Central Library, we'll walk to Fairfax Drive.

Hi all,

A bit of an update: the BAC's September meeting will be tonight at 7pm. We will meet at the Quincy-St-side Central Library (1015 N Quincy Street) and walk a stretch of Quincy Street to discuss putting a protected bike lane on Quincy between the Custis Trail and Glebe.

Afterwards, please join us for drinks at Carpool (before it's gone for good! (https://www.arlnow.com/2016/09/12/carpool-sold-but-will-remain-open-for-a-few-months/))

Some of you may have see that I wrote the Progressive Voice article on ArlNow about this very issue last week (https://www.arlnow.com/2016/09/08/progressive-voice-protected-bike-lanes-help-everyone/). Late Thursday, after that went live, County staff asked us to postpone tonight's meeting, and combine it will a meeting next Monday with WABA's AAC and other stakeholders. Because tonight's meeting was already announced, I don't feel comfortable cancelling tonight. However, it is unclear how much information County staff will be able to share with us tonight. Hopefully they will at least be available to listen.

I am told that more information will be shared at next week's meeting, which is scheduled for Monday, September 19 at 7pm in the cafeteria at Washington-Lee HS (just up the street, though it's easiest to enter on the Stafford St side).

I know this is frustrating, but I wanted everyone to have information to plan accordingly.

Thanks and hope to see you tonight!
