An additional public meeting on the Clermont Park Master Plan Revision will be held on Thursday, November 21, 2019 at 7 p.m. The meeting will take place in the Clermont Elementary School cafeteria. The school is located at 5720 Clermont Drive in Alexandria, VA.
In response to continued community interest and the large volume of comments received on the proposed draft Clermont Park Master Plan Amendment to install athletic field lighting at two of the existing diamond fields that was shared with the community at the public meeting held on July 25, 2019, Supervisor Jeff McKay convened a community task force to look further into the issues and options for future park development. The Fairfax County Park Authority is holding this public information meeting to present an update on the master plan amendment process based on the community task force discussions.
Clermont Park currently provides over 40 acres of playing fields, parking, trails, and forest. The park is in the Lee Supervisory District and is classified as a community park. Existing facilities provide opportunities for park users to practice; exercise; walk their dogs; and enjoy the outdoors. The park’s key assets are its athletic fields, and open space, all of which are popular among surrounding neighbors and the broader community.
Clermont Park’s current master plan has guided the park’s uses and development since it was approved in 1975. Since the original master plan was approved, usage of the park fields has grown as the county has developed. The volume of users has maximized the current capacity of the fields and adding lighting would allow for additional field use while keeping the natural areas of the park intact. A revised draft master plan has been proposed to help Clermont Park continue to evolve to meet the needs and interests of county residents while ensuring protection of the park's important resources for future generations.
