Support Bike Infrastructure in Arlington!
The City of Arlington has two important plans up for approval: the Hike and Bike System Master Plan (HBP) and the Thoroughfare Development Plan (TDP).
The proposed TDP is important because, besides improving general vehicle traffic overall, some roads will never be increased in width (as they are currently slated to do), allowing for possible on-street bicycle infrastructure. So, in essence, the TDP and Hike and Bike Plan go hand-in-hand. Because of that they are up for approval at the same meetings. You can learn more about both plans in this PDF prepared by the city.
To show your support for these plans, you can do the following important steps:
1) Tell your friends about these plans and the need for their support
Send this link to them via email, or post it on your Facebook Page.
2) Come out to support the plans!
