The Environmental Quality Advisory Council hosted its annual public comment meeting on January 13, 2021 virtually, via WebEx.
A video recording of this meeting is available upon request. Please email EQAC@fairfaxcounty.gov to request the video recording.
The Fairfax County Environmental Quality Advisory Council (EQAC) is appointed by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors to advise on environmental matters. The public is encouraged to attend EQAC’s electronic public comment meeting to share views on the state of the environment and to identify environmental issues of concern applicable to Fairfax County.
While the timing of the public comment meeting tends to coincide with the publication of EQAC’s Annual Report on the Environment (see note below), the public hearing is not intended to focus on the Annual Report. Instead, the purpose of the meeting is to solicit your views and concerns regarding environmental issues. EQAC welcomes written and/or verbal testimony. Please limit verbal testimony to three minutes per speaker.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, EQAC did not produce a 2020 Annual Report on the Environment. However, the Report’s Scorecard has been updated to assess progress on previous recommendations. The Scorecard can be viewed online here.
