  • Activities that expand bicycle and pedestrian safety and education programs and infrastructure development;
  • Developing resources, such as maps and education information that promote bicycling as transportation option and recreational outlet;
  • Coordinating with existing infrastructure projects and programs to maximize implementation opportunities and financial efficiencies;
  • Pursuing local, state, and federal funds to advance pedestrian and bicycle programs, planning, and implementation;
  • Provide support and technical assistance to advance pedestrian and bicycle resources and education;
  • Serve as a liaison to VDOT, DRPT, and DMV to ensure state programs are articulated and advanced locally;
  • Serve as a clearing house for local, state, and regional pedestrian and bicycle related resources; and
  • Provide support to local initiatives, events, and organizations to advance pedestrian and bicycle safety, education, and participation.

The LGC bicycle, pedestrian, and trail program activities are guided by the yearly approved transportation work program and overseen by the bicycle and pedestrian advisory committee, Region 2000 Greenway Alliance.  The Alliance serves in an advisory role to assist in meeting the targeted program activities.
