- The National Park Service has issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) based on an Environmental Assessment the agency conducted for the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail's Kenliworth Section. With funding in place thanks to a TIGER grant, this was the last planning milestone for the project. "Design of the trail segment is to be complete at the end of this summer with construction starting by the end of 2012. Completing construction by 2014 will involve building five bridges, raised pathways and multi-use paths."
- Legislation before the DC Council will "allow the city to strike agreements with developers under which residential parking permits could be denied to tenants in some buildings yet to be constructed. Potential dwellers would have to swear off residential parking as a condition of sale or lease, meaning they would have to forgo owning a car or pay for private parking to avoid summonses." Part of what makes this possible according to Harriet Tregoning: Capital Bikeshare.
- The Capital Crescent Trail has been reopened.
- The Park Service is studying possible locations for a community boathouse on the Virginia side of the Potomac. "In August 2002, the National Park Service (NPS) released a study entitled Facility & Site Analysis (feasibility study) for a Boathouse on the Potomac River in Arlington County and Vicinity." The four locations proposed by that study - two on the waterfront near Key Bridge, one south of the CSX/14th Street Potomac River Bridges, and one on Daingerfield Island, south of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport - might have an impact on the Mt Vernon Trail. There will be a meeting on this and the re-initialization of the EIS process on July 24th at the Washington-Lee High School Cafeteria.
- Fairfax County is in talks to add Capital Bikeshare or some other bike sharing to the county by 2014 - in time for the Silver Line opening. They would test it in Reston and then expand it to Tysons Corner.
