Environmental Quality Advisory Council - Public Hearings
Each year, EQAC holds a public hearing to obtain input on issues of
environmental concern. The most recent public hearing was held on
Monday, January 7, 2013.
The public is encouraged to attend EQAC's public hearing to share views on the state of the environment and to identify environmental issues applicable to Fairfax County. The public is also invited to attend any EQAC meeting and to submit correspondence for EQAC's consideration at any time. Environmental issues considered by EQAC include water quality, air quality, noise, hazardous materials, solid waste, stream valley protection, wildlife management, light pollution, visual pollution, climate change response and adaptation, energy conservation, land use, transportation and the use and preservation of ecological resources. While the timing of the public hearing tends to coincide with the timing of the publication of EQAC's Annual Report on the Environment, the public hearing is not intended to focus on the Annual Report but is instead intended to hear your views and concerns regarding environmental issues of interest to you.
Summaries of recent public hearings are available below in portable document format (PDF) or in Word format. In order to view PDF documents, you will need the Adobe Reader installed on your computer.
