Besides the movie Contested Streets, there was other business at the BAC meeting on 1/3/07.
The presentation on the Bicycle Transit Center (aka Bike Station) was given again - I'm working on a post on this, so more later.
We discussed priorities for the upcoming year. The Met Branch trail is DDOT's top priority. Though the bike plan calls for about 10 miles of bike lane a year, DDOT says that experience has taught them that 5 is about all they can add, but they are adding about 100 bike racks a year (not enough to make up for the 400 lost parking meters, but still...). They're working on the Rock Creek/Rose Park Bike trail rebuild and the CCT in Georgetown. Parking at the baseball stadium and bike lanes in the area is a top priority because of its time criticality. Work "should have already begun" on the section of the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail between Benning Road and the Navy Yard. Removing the requirement for bike registration was dealt a setback, but people hope to get it in front of Council Member Jim Graham's committee for approval (letters to him form his constituents could help this).
WABA mentioned plans to add bicycle safety programs at eight schools as well as increase its adult Confident Cycling program. They're also working on a safe cycling brochure and a bike law handbook (which is desperately needed for those of us bad at Westlaw).
