BAC Bimonthly General Meeting - May 7, 2014

The next bimonthly BAC meeting is Wednesday, May 7, 2014 beginning at 6pm. We will return to the One Judiciary Square building, 441 4th Street NW.  As always, DCBAC meetings are open to the public and we invite you to participate in our discussion about the District's bicycling issues.

This meeting will feature a discussion with a senior National Park Service (NPS) planner for  National Capital region. We will discuss the current status of certain NPS projects as well as plans for the future. This person has no authority or responsibility over any given park within the region, except as matters relate to planning.

The representative will share NPS' plans to update the 1990 Paved Trails of the National Capital Region: Recommendations for Improvements and Coordination to Form a Metropolitan Multi-Use Trail System, which can be found here.

Again, the meeting will revolve only around NPS planning and not focus on park maintenance, policy, or enforcement.

We also will discuss bike-related topics including the status of bicycle facilities completed or planned by District Department of Transportation. BAC subcommittees (Legislative; Safety, Education, and Enforcement; and Facilities) will also provide reports.

When entering the building, please make sure to bring government-issued identification and use the south elevators to get to the 11th floor conference room. Bicycle parking is available in front of the building and please remember to also bring your bike lock. The closest Capital Bikeshare station is at the entrance of the building.

As always, BAC meetings are open to the public and we encourage the sharing of your thoughts and your questions. If you cannot attend the meeting, please leave use our comments section below or @DCBAC on twitter.

We look forward to seeing you.
