WCA Owner/Tenant Contact Update Form

(click here)

Maintaining current contact information helps the board and its committees reach owners and tenants with important board announcements as well as during emergency events such as a water/gas main break or to report storm damage to vehicles or other property.  Each owner and paying tenant should complete a separate form.  Non-resident owners should enter their address at the end of the form.  Note: You do NOT need to have a Google account in order to update and submit the form.

To My Hunter Mill District Neighbors:

Yesterday, June 9, the Board of Supervisors issued a joint statement on racial equity - I encourage you to take a few minutes to read it below; you can also watch the video. In addition, I invite you to watch the Board of Supervisors Public Safety Committee meeting on Tuesday, June 16 at 1:30 p.m., which will include a discussion with our Police Department. Details, including how you can watch are here. As always, I value your input - if you have questions or comments related to racial equity and justice in Hunter Mill District or the county, or as it relates to our Fairfax County Police Department, please send me an email at huntermill@fairfaxcounty.gov

Board of Supervisors Statement:
“The senseless murder of George Floyd sparked thousands in our County to stand up against persistent racial inequity in our country. Mr. Floyd’s violent and wrongful death is sadly all too familiar. We are all grieving for the Floyd family, the families of those who have experienced similar pain, and the many who have died in similar acts of violence. Black Lives Matter.

After many years of the topic being swept under the rug nationally, racial injustice is finally at the forefront of the country’s dialogue. Locally, we know Fairfax County still has work to do on this subject. Unfortunately, last week one of our officers violated not only FCPD policy but broke the trust that our community has placed in us to do our job properly. We are thinking of the victim and his family and, though we applaud the quick action by our Department, we know this is not where the conversation ends.

We recognize that most of our officers work with compassion and take their charge to protect and serve seriously. We know they join us in our anger at the events witnessed here and across the country, and our commitment to strengthen the community’s trust. We must all do this together – achieving results must mean we are all committed.

This Board of Supervisors demands transparency and accountability in local government. This is true for all our agencies, including our Fairfax County Police Department.

There are tough but much needed conversations ahead. We are committed to listening to the concerns of our community and re-examining our policies. We have adopted One Fairfax to intentionally make decisions under an equity lens, to promote procedures and policies that are forward thinking, and to recognize that our diversity is our strength. Despite that, we know we still have important work to do as a county, state, and country. At this time, we must listen to our community and heal together. We have seen peaceful protests throughout our County that reaffirm our community’s desire to always improve and that actions speak louder than words.

There is no one policy or program we can enact today that will solve every single issue. While we have made major progress to the policies and programs we do have in place, such as the Police Civilian Review Panel and Independent Police Auditor which came from the Ad Hoc Police Practices Review Commission, we know we have more work to do.

As you’ll hear in a moment, we’ll be forming the Chairman’s Task Force on Equity and Opportunity to advance racial equity and promote the change necessary for creating a Fairfax County that works for everyone. This group will bring together diverse community stakeholders to help us with our work.

We know this is an issue that requires constant vigilance. With the help our community, we will continue the work of our One Fairfax policy, and always strive to ensure true equity among all.”

Update on June 23, 2019 Homicide
Last summer there was much concern among neighbors in Hunters Woods regarding the homicide of Reston resident Jose Lorenzo Guillen Mejia on a walking trail between Hunters Woods Plaza and Breton Court. Former Hunter Mill District Supervisor Cathy Hudgins and representatives from the Reston District Police Station held several community meetings with the Hunters Woods Neighborhood Coalition and others to provide information and updates. Today, June 10, we learned that a juvenile has been charged who is already incarcerated at the Fairfax County Juvenile Detention Center for an unrelated offense and remains held without bond. I am grateful for the investigative work of our Police Department towards bringing closure to the victim’s family and the communityLearn more.
Land Use News
ZMOD Update on Accessory Dwelling Units and Home-Based Businesses
As part of a mostly technical cleanup of Fairfax County’s zoning ordinance (last overhaul:1978), consideration is also being given to expanding a homeowner’s ability to create an accessory dwelling unit on their property. While the surveys on accessory dwelling units and home-based businesses have closed, the County still wants to hear from you. Short informational videos on these topics is posted on the zMOD website. Please note that although the names contain the same initial letters, accessory dwelling units are not the same as Affordable Dwelling Units in Fairfax County, whereas the long-term use of the abbreviation ‘ADU’ applies to the affordable dwelling unit program in which the county requires developers of single family subdivisions to provide affordable housing. Learn more
