The Alexandria BPAC (Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee) is having its July meeting this upcoming Monday, July 17, at 7 p.m. at the Bradlee Safeway Community Room at 3526 King Street Alexandria, VA.

I do not have the agenda for the meeting, but we will have a guest speaker. Jeremy Grandstaff from the National Federation of the Blind will speak about how people who are vision-impaired travel around the city.

The meeting is open to the public. If you happen to know anyone with vision-impairment, I strongly recommend letting them know about this meeting.
