Linda Q. Smyth
Chairman: As the Board is aware the Fairfax County Telework
program is increasing its use among County employees.
Almost nine years ago, the County's decision to embark
on this important initiative was well-received by the
Metropolitan Washington area.
the importance of Telework in our county, I feel that
providing the infrastructure in new buildings to support
T1 or equivalent secure communication lines and also
to support broadband connections in individual residential
units is vital if the program is to continue growing.
Therefore, Mr. Chairman, I move that the County Executive
examine what measures should be taken with the Department
of Planning and Zoning to ensure that such Telework
infrastructure measures are included in new building
plans by developers in our area - including proffered
commitments or development conditions.
