F.C. Council Votes to Withdraw Plan to Remove Street Parking

After a blizzard of protests from City residents since last Thursday, the Falls Church City Council modified its agenda tonight to pass a motion withdrawing a so-called “Pedestrian Plan” that proposed creating bicycle lanes by removing on-street parking.

The motion called for withdrawal of the plan and the elimination of any reference to a reduction in on-street parking. The motion stated that “the plan will not include any reduction of available on street parking.” The motion defers consideration of the plan to June 25. After a public hearing the motion passed unanimously.
