The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has scheduled a retreat for Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 6-7, at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton.

This two-day meeting will be an opportunity for Fairfax County’s 12th urban county Board of Supervisors to discuss challenges and priorities and set a course of action for a sustainable future that will ensure the overall health and well-being of Fairfax County.

The informal setting will allow board members time to discuss their views on issues and to focus on priorities for protecting and enriching the quality of life for residents, neighborhoods and diverse communities.

There will be no formal action taken during the retreat. Many of the ideas and concepts discussed will serve as a framework for the board's agenda during the next four years.

Due to the limited space, attendees to this board retreat will be seated as space permits. This is not a public hearing and not a forum for public comment.
