BAC - FAC Meeting - Getting there by Getting Through NPS

Our December Bicycle Advisory Council Facilities Committee (BAC-FAC) meeting will be Monday, December 2 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Shaw's Tavern, 520 Florida Avenue NW.

The agenda includes discussion of fostering effective engagement with the National Park Service (NPS) and prioritizing projects which involve NPS property or an in District control but must adhere to certain NPS requirements.

The National Park Service operates several large and small parks in and around the District.

Some categorized the relationship between NPS and the region's bicyclists and pedestrians as cool at best and acrimonious at worst, with cyclists wanting expanded and safer access to NPS facilities and NPS being focusing on larger or high profile parks, preservation, and fiscal constraints.
