- If you are a businessman, or know someone who is, you may be interested in the South Fairfax Chamber of Commerce's new virtual platform which allows members to increase their virtual visibility and build social media and enhanced marketing. Contact Casey Whitmarsh at email@example.com to get more information and find out about the benefits, including a tool to get your business out there virtually.
- Supervisor Storck's 34th Annual MV Town meeting on February 6, will be all virtual and may be followed on Channel 16 or Facebook, and starts at 9 AM.
- Covid vaccine program - Frustration abounds. Dan Storck has sent out a newsletter with the registration form, as well as the 703 324-7404 vaccine hotline. You can also find the information on Mr Storck's website. The hotline got more than 200,000 calls in 24 hours, and so it’s probably a better idea to register on line or with the paper registration form.
- Sidewalk for Hooes Rd - Anyone who is interested in asking Supervisor Herrity about the design and construction of the Hooes Road pathway to connect the Fairfax County Parkway with Silverbrook Road, the contact in Herrity’s office is Peyton Onks, 703 451-8873 and/or Peyton.Onks@fairfaxcounty.gov
- FCDOT will attend the February SCF meeting to provide HOAs with information on how to request and obtain traffic-slowing humps in neighborhoods. Is there interest in our community?
- We passed three resolutions having to do with the landfill and its evolution one day into a park-with-a-view trying to keep a close eye on that progress.
- Bathroom design at the Central Green - The last piece needed at the recently opened Laurel Crest Central Green park is selection and construction of the bathroom. The Park Authority has submitted a design that has been described as "a 1960's McDonalds without the arches". We are going to post the currently approved design on the SCF website, and would like to hear what others think. Assuming that the majority of folks agree that it really is ugly, we will go to the Feb meeting of the Architectural Review Board and hope to get approval for a different, more pleasing design. I just checked the website, and it doesn't look like those posts have been made yet. I'll write again when it's available.
