Elizabeth M. Fairchild Donates Land
Oct. 5, 2009
During its regularly scheduled meeting today, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors recognized longtime resident, entrepreneur and developer Elizabeth M. Fairchild for her donation of a nearly 8.5 acres of land along the Richmond Highway Commercial Revitalization District.
“Mrs. Fairchild's generous donation contributes greatly to the continued quality environment that encourages families to live, work and play in Fairfax County,” said Sharon Bulova, chairman of the Board of Supervisors.
A mother of five children, grandmother to 17 grandchildren and a well-known philanthropist, Fairchild sees the donation of the land as a prime opportunity to give something back to the community.
“Mrs. Fairchild’s generosity provides a significant resource for Fairfax County residents,” said Mount Vernon District Supervisor Gerald W. Hyland. “This park will provide a place for children to play and families to gather.”
