- An evaluation of Fairfax Forward to look at how successful the process has been as a replacement to the Area Plans Review process
As you may recall, our comprehensive planning process Fairfax Forward has been undergoing an evaluation to look at how successful the process has been as a replacement to the Area Plans Review process. Two of the main concerns have been the amount of public engagement in the process and the amount of general understanding of the process. Staff has been working with the Planning Commission to draft proposed modifications to the process which bring back elements of the old APR process – namely, bring back a citizen nomination process for site-specific proposals. We would like to discuss these changes with the Sully community.

- Fairfax Federation Membership Presentation: Neighborhood Forest Management on 19 January 2017
- Jim McGlone, Urban Forest Conservationist, Virginia Department of Forestry, will cover Neighborhood Forest Management
- Neighborhood trees are a major asset for anSy neighborhood. They improve property values, reduce vacancy rates, reduce heating and cooling costs, reduce stress, and improve community cohesiveness. But, it is important that they are properly maintained and cared for during their life and safely removed at the end of their life. Untended trees are a risk to you and your neighbors. Jim McGlone will talk about how to manage your neighborhood trees so they live long and prosper. He will also teach us how to see the signs of their decline so they can be treated or removed safely. Jim McGlone is an Urban Forest Conservationist for the Virginia Department of Forestry, is a Tree Risk Assessment Qualified and Certified arborist and has been helping homeowners in northern Virginia for over 10 years.
