Embark Richmond Highway Community Meeting Set for July 25
FABB members may recall from earlier posts that the Embark Richmond Highway project supports the county’s long term goals of improving the county’s pedestrian and bicycle systems, expanding transit service, and building more dense, mixed-use, transit-oriented developments to attract residents and businesses, create more jobs, and increase tax revenue. Among the presentations to be made at the meeting, there will be a discussion of the proposed Richmond Highway multi-modal cross-section that accommodates transit, automobiles, bicycles and pedestrians. A brief question and answer period will follow the presentations and the public will be able to talk one-on-one with county staff representatives who are leading various aspects of the project.
To make it easier to attend, Fairfax County has posted maps and schedules here for public transportation to the event through Fairfax Connector Routes 152, 161 & 162. Also, on-site childcare is available, on request, for children over the age of 3. Requests for childcare and transportation assistance will be accepted through Thursday, July 21, 2016, by calling 703-704-6700, TTY 711, or by email at email@example.com.
The Fairfax County Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ), Fairfax County Office of Community Revitalization and Reinvestment (OCR), and Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) will be hosting a live online chat on Thursday, July 28, 2016, at 11 a.m., to help answer questions from residents impacted by the Embark Richmond Highway project. Send in your questions today or participate live here.
