Joint Environmental Task Force Meeting Materials

The Joint Environmental Task Force (JET) was jointly created in April 2019 by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and the Fairfax County School Board. The JET brought together members of the community, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and the Fairfax County School Board to identify potential areas of collaboration to further Fairfax County’s efforts and strategies in addressing energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. The final meeting of the JET was held in January 2022. More information on the JET.
