BPAC supports the West Main streetscape design adopted by City Council. Learn why by reading BPAC's Official Statement on the issue. 




In April 2016, BPAC conducted a demonstration of bike- and ped-friendly wayfinding signs. Committee co-chair Jake Fox designed clear, colorful signs pointing the way to parks, schools, and public facilities--giving the estimated travel time to each destination on foot or on wheels. The wayfinding demonstration was part of much larger project to make Charlottesville's streets come alive.
