Statement on Mark Center


April 26, 2011

Statement by Supervisor Jeff McKay:

Fairfax County and others have been concerned about increased traffic and the implementation of a transportation management plan related to the opening of the new the Department of Defense facility at the Mark Center in Alexandria. Those concerns were heightened and validated earlier this month when the Inspector General of the Department of Defense published a report that was critical of the environmental assessment completed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers in 2008.

Following the release of that report by the Inspector General, it was suggested that Fairfax County should consider taking legal action to force the Army to address the traffic management issues raised by the Inspector General. Fairfax County has reviewed the matter, and while we remain concerned about the significant traffic impact expected from that new facility, we have determined that federal law does not give the County an opportunity to challenge that environmental assessment at this time. We will continue to explore all of our options both legally and legislatively with our federal legislative delegation.
