September 20, 2013- The 2013 Harrisonburg & Rockingham Bike-Walk Summit built on the momentum from the previous year’s Harrisonburg Action 2020 event, which brought together advocates, planners, and local officials to examine funding possibilities, exchange ideas, and coordinate future priorities for the development of bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure in the Harrisonburg-Rockingham region.



Action 2020 Workshop

On September 21, 2012, Advocacy Advance – a partnership between the Alliance for Biking & Walking and League of American Bicyclists – hosted an Action 2020 Workshop. Participants of the workshop, hosted by SVBC and the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Metropolitan Planning Organization, learned how to maximize funding in the new Transportation Alternatives program and utilize all MAP-21 funding programs for bicycle and pedestrian projects at the state and local levels.
