WEDNESDAY, 10/9: Candidates Forum on Transportation

Fall Church City Residents are invited to attend a City Council Candidates Forum hosted by Citizens for a Better City.

The forum will cover transportation in the Little City, “From Parking to Pedestrians and Public Transportation.” It will take place on Wednesday, October 9th at 7:30 PM at ARTSPACE, Home of Creative Cauldron & Falls Church Arts, at 410 South Maple Avenue.

A reception will precede the forum and refreshments will be served.

Candidates will be asked to address questions related to the inherent challenges and opportunities presented by the ever-growing and changing transit needs of our community.


For example:

The Silver Line is coming to our eastern border bringing a new source of traffic to the east end of town and development to neighboring Arlington. How will this influx impact Falls Church?

The Pedestrian Plan’s status is uncertain but the problems left behind still need a solution. What to do?

The City is flanked by two Metro stops, one on each border, and bisected by a state-controlled Route 7. What challenges and opportunities are presented by these immutable forces?

Parking restrictions often derail development – how is this good and bad?


Please come join us and bring a friend and your questions.
