• Grant from Transurban to Fund Bike Racks Partnership

    Through the efforts of our economic development committee (EDC) the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce was awarded a $1,500 grant from Transurban USA for central Springfield bike rack installation partnerships.

    Since 2008, Transurban has been active in the local community through its Express Lanes community grant program, which supports organizations that sustain, enhance and protect the local environment and community.

    The EDC will collaborate with commercial property owners, Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) and Transportation Association of Greater Springfield (TAGS) to identify strategic areas to locate bike parking where most needed and currently missing. Bike racks will be purchased and installed with commercial property owner investment and matching funds from the Chamber, FCDOT and TAGS.

    The EDC’s first year goal is to install six to eight bike racks, making the central Springfield area more hospitable to residents, employees and visitors who use cycling as a primary means of transportation.

    If you own commercial property in central Springfield and would like to be consider for matching bike parking funds contact the Chamber office, 703-866-3500.

    Nancy-jo Manney has served as executive director of the Greater Springfield Chamber since 1998. Over the years she's seen many nice pedestrian and bicycle improvements in her community but she knows there's work yet to be done.
