To the Fairfax County Community,
I wanted to take a moment to recognize Lilla Richards, former Dranesville District Supervisor, who passed away last week. Her institutional knowledge about Fairfax County's zoning ordinance helped bring about many positive land-use and environmental changes to Fairfax.
Lilla was a strong activist for her community. She was the President of the McLean Citizen's Association, worked to find a permanent home for the McLean Project for the Arts at the McLean Community Center, and was critical to the creation of the Old Firehouse Teen Center.
Lilla's archives are located in the Virginia Room at Fairfax Library. She was a Fairfax County giant and will be missed.
