- Public Input Sought on Northern Virginia Hazard Mitigation Plan
- The 2022 Northern Virginia Hazard Mitigation Plan (NOVA HMP) is a multi-jurisdictional plan that includes Fairfax County, as well as twenty other counties, cities or towns. The plan, required to be updated every five years, aims to minimize or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from known hazards, such as droughts, floods, winter weather, high winds, and other major disasters. Hazard mitigation efforts could include projects such as flood channel clearing, road and bridge design changes, property buy-outs, building code changes, or public alert systems.

Resilient Fairfax will be discussed again at the November 1st meeting. You are encouraged to read the report and the accompanying documentation.
- Fairfax County's Latest Pedestrian, Bike and Traffic Safety Campaign
- All community members share the responsibility of creating a safe transportation network. As an ongoing commitment to the safety of all residents, Fairfax County launched a multifaceted countywide campaign titled "Take a Moment" to eliminate traffic-related deaths and injuries. This campaign asks that community members take a moment to look around fully, put away distractions, and observe traffic laws.
- Representatives from Fairfax County Government and partnering agencies held a press conference this week to launch the campaign (watch video). The County has committed around $100 million of funding over the next six years to address this topic. For more information about the Take a Moment campaign, please visit the County website about the topic.
- Connector Service To New Metrorail Silver Line Stations
- Speed camera pilot program:
The Public Safety Committee heard a presentation from the FCPD about a new program to install mobile speed cameras at Fairfax County schools and construction sites. This six-month pilot program starting the first quarter of 2023 would assess the effectiveness of speed cameras and resulting fines in an effort to prevent pedestrian injuries and deaths. The BoS will likely have a public hearing on this new ordinance at the December 6th meeting. To be clear, this program is not about generating revenue but about changing driving behaviors --excessive speeding-- around our schools. There is much more to come on this in the coming months including a public hearing before any implementation could occur.
