New Year, New County Government Website!

new website

A new, modern, resident-focused website is critical for Fairfax County Government’s digital business and informational future.

After many months of work, here is the initial version of a new county government website at


Things to Know About the New County Website

  1. A totally new, modern design, including responsive design for any device.
  2. A rethought site structure, with a focus on new topic-level pages to highlight some of the most important, resident-focused information. You don’t have to know the county’s organization chart to navigate our site.
  3. An open-source (and cost-effective) content system behind the scenes that will be updated continuously with new features that we can deliver to you.
  4. A satisfaction survey on every page so you can let us know about your experience with particular pages, as well as other focused opportunities to better understand how the new site will be used over time.
  5. A new search engine.
  6. Of course, there will be some broken links as we make this transition, so we are committed to fixing those as soon as possible. Thanks in advance for your patience!


Features of the New Site

We made it easier to find services close to where you live. Our new Neighborhoods Page lets you find schools, parks and government offices based on your address. It also provides information on HOAs, elected officials and more. See what’s near you!

Visit Neighborhoods Page


Have a vague memory of something you saw online but can’t recall the details? Now you can use our Social Media Hub to search archived messages from all of Fairfax County’s social media accounts. Find the tweet you need in our archive.

Are you the kind who loves numbers? Want to see details in graphical form? The new site boasts a whole new section of Maps and Data to tour. There’s even a Spotlight on Data on the county’s homepage – a true dataphile’s delight!

Visit Maps and Data Page


It can be hard to know who to call when you need something. Our website has a page outlining all of our hotlines and emergency numbers in one place. In a crisis, always call 9-1-1; but if you don’t know who to call, check online or call 703-FAIRFAX.

You can find a wealth of information on Click the “Residents” drop-down menu from the home page to easily learn about county services, taxes and fees, property and housing, and more. Or visit the Residents page directly.

You likely come to our site for a service — pay taxes, find books, look up real estate assessments. Visit our Services page to find, pay, report and/or register/apply for something.

Translating our website is easier than ever before! If you need information in a different language, just click the settings wheel on the top-right of the homepage and choose the language you’d like to display. More than 75 languages are available.
