Franconia Gov Center site: community meeting Monday, April 22

Please consider lending your voice and listening to plans for development happening in our community. There are two more important opportunities.

Franconia District Supervisor Rodney Lusk has scheduled meetings to determine community support for a plan to build as many as 120 affordable housing units at 6121 Franconia Road, after the Franconia Governmental Center is relocated to the new Beulah Street site.

At the Franconia Dems’ March Zoom meeting, Supervisor Lusk explained that many of the rental units would provide housing for public servants such as teachers, police officers and firefighters who work in our community but cannot afford to live here.

New development always raises important questions. Experts and policy decision-makers will be on hand with accurate information to share. Franconia has benefited from a supervisor with deep experience in economic development and a strong track record of bringing high quality development throughout all corners of Fairfax County.

Please mark your calendar for these important and informative meetings to be held at John Lewis High School on the following dates:  Monday, April 22, from 6 to 8 pm, to receive input from the community; and Monday, May 6, from 6 to 8 pm, to report back to the community.
