Bike progress in Herndon:
The Herndon Town Council approved new bicycle facilities
including extending trails, new bike lanes, and a cycle track. The measure does not commit funds, but should make funding easier. (Connection)
The elections board says it didn't make any mistakes
in rejecting Initiative 70; instead, proponents just didn't have the colors of their checkmarks which weren't on the black and white copies the board provided, and didn't avail themselves of options for monitoring the process that the board didn't tell them about. (Post)

and think President Obama's investments in infrastructure have been for "an exclusively urban vision of dense housing and government transit." (Streetsblog)
