Deeds / Toscano Town Hall

by Bike Charlottesville on April 1, 2011

Heather Higgins attended the Deeds / Toscano Town Hall on Thursday evening along with perhaps 50+ other people.  The conversation was lively with discussion on just about every issue before the legislature this year.  Higgins thanked Sen. Deeds and Del. Toscano in public for their efforts on behalf of cyclists this year.  It’s true, we were not successful with the cycling bills put forward this year, but we agreed that together we would persevere.  Seizing the opportunity to market our cause to all in attendance, Higgins explained that we’re striving for a multi-modal tranpsoration system that is safe and effective for all roadway users.  She also pointed out that in the next 20 years, the transportation needs in our MPO are forecast to increase by 60%.  Increasing cycling ridership is an important part of the solution we should be pursuing as a community.
