FACS has join a coalition of transit, clean water, housing, smart growth, and climate advocacy groups representing local and regional non-profits to speak up on issues for the upcoming county and state elections. The coalition is offering a policy platform that they hope all candidates for Fairfax County Board or Virginia General Assembly offices will adopt.
Fairfax Healthy Communities: Sustainable, Inclusive, Livable calls for an integrated approach to the land use, housing, transportation, conservation, climate and social equity challenges facing the county. FACS urges its supporters to read the platform and join us in speaking up on its behalf.
Fairfax Healthy Communities: Sustainable, Inclusive, Livable
A Joint Vision for Fairfax County in 2019
We support a vision for Fairfax County that is sustainable, inclusive, and livable and urge candidates for local and state office in Fairfax County to support this vision and to commit to the implementation steps necessary to make this vision a reality.
We share a vision for Fairfax County where the County commits to:
A sustainable, inclusive, healthy, competitive, and fiscally sustainable future for Fairfax requires a fundamental shift in land use, transportation, housing and energy policies toward walkable, mixed-use, mixed-income, and transit-oriented and green energy communities, and the full engagement of the community in achieving this future.
