- Fairfax Federation Seeks Nominations for Fairfax County 2012 Citizen of the Year
- The Fairfax County Federation of Citizens Associations is soliciting nominations for its 2012 Fairfax County Citizen of the Year. Each year, a selection committee of county-wide organizations meets to review nominations for the Federation's "Citizen of the Year" and merit awards. The winners are honored at our annual banquet, planned for 7 April 2013
- Both the Citizen of the Year Award and the Citation(s) of Merit recognize and honor those citizens whose voluntary contributions of time and talent resulted in major accomplishments that have enhanced the quality of life for citizens of Fairfax County.
- Nominees must be current residents of Fairfax County.
- Elected officials and full-time county or commonwealth employees are ineligible for consideration if their contributions are related to their full-time positions.
- The Citizen of the Year is recognized for voluntary acts that are not related to employment.
- Contributions and accomplishments must have countywide rather than local significance.
- The nominee's achievements can be either:
- General, such as multi-year community service with one or more organizations or activities with cumulative impact over the years of current importance or with positive implications for the future, or
- Specific, including intense efforts as the major promoter of a single program or project completed in a finite period of time.
- Persons whose contributions of time and talent resulted in major accomplishments that have enhanced the quality of life for citizens of Fairfax County, who do not meet the published eligibility standards for the Citizen of the Year consideration, may still be honored by the Federation. Please submit information about these nominees on the nomination form, indicating that this is an alternative nomination.
- Nominations will be accepted from 1 December 2012 until 31 January 2013. The nomination form is available online from the Federation’s website, http://www.fairfaxfederation.org.
- The Citizen of the Year event is again generously supported by Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC). “Encouraging the volunteer engagement of Fairfax County citizens, including the thousands of our employees and their families here, is a major objective of our community relations,” said Douglas Koelemay, SAIC vice president.
- The Federation, established in 1940, is the countywide voice for homeowner, civic, and community associations. An all-volunteer organization, the Federation works on issues that impact Fairfax County residents, including education, transportation, environment, human services, land use, county budget, and county, state and federal legislation.

- Fairfax Forward EDITORIAL UPDATES: Overview and Character Sections of the Area Plans
- What are the Overview and Character sections?
The Overview and Character sections are introductions to the planning district and community planning sector text in the Area Plans of the Comprehensive Plan. The sections provide such information as boundaries, existing land uses, and notable features.
- Scope of Work
The editorial updates to the Overview and Character sections of the planning districts and community planning sectors generally intend to:
For example, references to the Richmond, Fredricksburg, and Potomac Railroad would be amended to reflect the current name of the CSX railroad, and references to planned public facilities, which are now open, would to be removed.
- Correct factual information,
- Remove out of date references, and
- Ensure a uniform writing style.
- The proposed changes do not intend to modify Plan recommendations, as recommendations are located in subsequent sections of the planning district and planning sectors text. If Plan recommendations were found in the Overview and Character sections, the text is proposed to be moved to the Recommendations sections of the planning sector, unless it is already stated.
- In addition, descriptions of activity centers, which have Plan text located in a separate section from the community planning sector or planning district, have been substituted with references to direct the reader to the appropriate activity center section. The scope of work does not include text changes for activity centers, such as Baileys Crossroads Community Business Center or the Fairfax Center Area.
- In case you have not submitted comments already, there is still time. PC public hearing on this will be 1-10-12
- Next Membership Meeting:
- Membership meeting scheduled for 24 January 2013 -
- Fairfax County 2014 School Budget
