MoveDC Kicks Off This Saturday
DDOT’s long-range transportation plan for the city, MoveDC, will formally begin this Saturday with an all-day meeting at the Martin Luther King Jr. library. The “idea exchange” will include a welcome address by Mayor Vincent Gray, Councilmember Mary Cheh, and DDOT Director Terry Bellamy; discussions on the future of transportation; and an all-day transportation fair. The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. at MLK Library, 901 G St. NW, and will run until 3 p.m. See the MoveDC page for more information. We hope you’ll come out to show the presence of cyclists interested in DDOT’s plans for how people will get around D.C. throughout the next decade. The best thing you can do is show up and ask for improvements for cycling infrastructure that will help not just you, your friends, and your neighbors ride bikes. At our recent advocacy open house, we advised attendees on bike-specific talking points that will likely be relevant to what’s presented at WeMove. See a PDF of those talking points below, and consider bringing a copy on Saturday. We’ll continue to provide updates here and on our website about how you can make your voice heard and advocate for the needs of cyclists throughout the MoveDC process, which will run for about 18 months.
