About the Draft Fairfax County Safe Streets for All Program
The draft program includes recommendations for a framework of education, policy, planning, programmatic and design strategies that facilitate collaboration between government and communities throughout Fairfax County to improve active transportation safety and comfort. FCDOT staff relied on public input to shape this draft program plan. In spring 2021, community members provided feedback on active transportation safety issues through an online survey and interactive maps, at virtual community meetings, and in-person at food distribution events.
