The Board of Supervisors honored Richard Bierce for his more than 30 years of service and dedication to Fairfax County as an Architecture Review Board (ARB) member. As a steward of county history, Bierce's accomplishments are comprehensive, according to Mount Vernon District Supervisor Dan Storck. One of his first ARB duties was to establish, preserve and protect 13 Historic Overlay Districts in the county. He has advocated for the protection and care of historic buildings, including the Laurel Hill Adaptive Reuse site, the Woodlawn and Arcadia partnership, and the Workhouse Arts Center. With almost 50 years as a historical architect and preservation consultant, he has worked on projects throughout Fairfax County, the state and nationwide.
