County Seeks Public Input on Uses for Laurel Hill

The Laurel Hill Adaptive Reuse Citizens Task Force is seeking input from the public on concepts it is considering recommending to the Board of Supervisors regarding the adaptive reuse of the former prison site at Lorton. The task force will present its preliminary recommendations during three public comment meetings:

Saturday, Feb. 21
9 a.m. - noon
Lorton Station Elementary School cafeteria
9298 Lewis Chapel Road, Lorton

Saturday, Feb. 28
9 a.m. - noon
Silverbrook Elementary School cafeteria
9350 Crosspointe Dr., Fairfax Station

Thursday, March 4
7 - 9 p.m.
Fairfax County Government Center
Conference Center Rooms 9 and 10
12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax

A complete list of scheduled meetings and presentations is available at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/cex/laurelhill/meetings.htm.

The work of the task force includes identifying uses for approximately 85 of the 2,300 acres on the Laurel Hill property. The 85 acres contain the former central/maximum security facility. Most of the buildings on the site are designated as historically significant.

After public comments are received and discussed, the task force will finalize recommendations, which are anticipated to be presented to the Board of Supervisors in spring 2004. The master planning process for Laurel Hill is an intensive effort that began in the fall of 2002 and will continue through late spring 2004. During this period, the Adaptive Reuse Citizens Task Force and the Fairfax County Park Authority have worked to develop a set of ideas and recommendations for the future use of the 2,300-acre Laurel Hill area.
