The Fairfax County Park Authority addressed the project concerns expressed in the June 6, 2019 letter to the editor [Mount Vernon Gazette, “Still Waiting on Improvements”] concerning improvements at Mount Vernon RECenter. There was also a request for additional communications regarding the project. Updates on the project can be found on the project website: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/planning-development/mount-vernon-recenter. Also, as a reminder to the community, our office publishes a monthly newsletter – the Advisor, regular BOS (Board of Supervisor) Briefs and other community Updates. We also actively post to Facebook, Twitter and Nextdoor. We are committed to keeping constituents informed on County projects and improvements, activities and developments occurring around the Mount Vernon District. To sign up for our newsletter, follow us on social media, and learn more about what is going on in the District, visit our website at https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/mountvernon/.
Our office continues to work with county and Park Authority staff to ensure this project stays on schedule and provides the most benefits to our residents. We look forward to seeing the Mount Vernon RECenter improvements phased in over the coming years and ultimately to celebrating the ribbon cutting on this greatly enhanced facility with the community.
