What is the State of Fairfax County's Environment?

Auduboners will have an opportunity in January to share views and suggestions on improving the local environment in Fairfax County.

The Fairfax County Environmental Quality Council will present its annual report on the state of the county’s environment to the Board of Supervisors on November 20 and hold a public hearing on January 9. Speakers can discuss what’s in the report, what’s missing, or other environmental issues. This annual report typically examines topics such as ecological resources, parks, air and water quality, wildlife management, and land use. 

The January 9 public hearing is set for 7:30 p.m. in conference rooms 4 and 5 in the Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax. The panel will accept written, oral, and video testimony. You can sign up to speak by email here or by calling 703-324-1380.
