Fairfax County will host a community information and outreach meeting at the Workhouse Arts Center on September 25th from 11:00a to 2:00p for community members to learn more about the Fairfax Peak private developer proposal at the I-95 Landfill. Fairfax County and Alpine X will have a tent at the Workhouse Community Market Day where attendees can stop by to learn about the proposed project. Two short formal presentations are planned for 11:30a and 1:30p. Visual displays of the project and QR codes for more info will be provided. (This is a zero-waste event – no paper collateral will be distributed).
Narrated optional bus tours of the site will also be available. Seats on the bus should be reserved in advance. Any unreserved seats will be available to walk-up passengers. ** At this time more seats have been added for tours** Reservations are highly recommended - priority will be given to reserved passengers.
In addition to the outreach event, community members can attend the Community Market at the Workhouse Arts Center, receive free admission to the Lucy Burns museum and visit the Occoquan Arts and Craft Show. (Parking shuttles run every 15 minutes from the Workhouse Parking lots.)
In 2019, Alpine-X submitted a public-private partnership proposal to the county to build a 450,000- square-foot snow sports facility with an expected 1,700-foot ski slope. The facility’s summit would reach an altitude of about 280 feet. The complex could contribute to Laurel Hill’s development as a regional recreation hub and arts destination. The facility would complement the existing equestrian center, Laurel Hill Golf Course and Workhouse Arts Center facilities.
Fairfax County is in process of the formal procurement. The project is contingent on the company successfully achieving any required land use entitlements to allow for the proposed uses. This event is being held in advance of proposed of advance of public hearings and Board of Supervisor actions anticipated to occur in Fall/Winter 2021/2022. More information on the proposal and next steps can be found on the Fairfax Peak web page.
