Park Authority Cultural Resource Management Plan


Park Authority Seeks Comments on Cultural Resource Plan

The Fairfax County Park Authority is seeking public comment on the newly-revised Cultural Resource Management Plan.  This plan was developed as part of the Park Authority’s continuing effort to promote the culture of resource stewardship in Fairfax County and to continue in its mission to protect cultural resources for present and future generations.  Public input will be accepted online at Parkmail@fairfaxcounty.gov and also through two public comment meetings set for October.

Public Comment Meetings

The first meeting will be held at Green Spring Gardens on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at 7 p.m. Green Spring Gardens is located at 4603 Green Spring Road in Alexandria Va.  The meeting will be held in the Garden Center meeting room.

A second meeting will take place at the Great Falls Grange on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 7 p.m. The Grange is located at 9818 Georgetown Pike, Great Falls, VA.

Interested speakers may sign up in advance by contacting the Public Information Office at 703-324-8662 or via Parkmail@fairfaxcounty.gov.  Individuals may speak for three minutes; groups or organizations may have one speaker for five minutes.  You may also sign up at the meeting.

This is an update to the 2006 plan.  The original plan had 11 topical chapters.  Over the years, staff and section reorganizations have broken out particular topic areas and responsibilities that required a new look at this plan.  Additionally, changes in requirements for reaccreditation by the American Alliance of Museums made a new, simplified approach desirable.

In 2017, the Cultural Resource Management Plan is being revamped to provide a more streamlined approach to archaeology and historic preservation.  The new plan reflects recent structural changes that established two cooperative branches; the Heritage Conservation Branch and the Archaeology and Collections Branch. This plan sets forth specific branch responsibilities and coordinates agency-wide efforts.

View the Draft Cultural Resources Management Plan. Public comment will be accepted through Friday, November 17, 2017.  Following consideration of all public comments as well as any needed plan revisions, the Park Authority Board will consider the document for approval.  For more information contact Dr. Elizabeth Crowell at Elizabeth.Crowell@fairfaxcounty.gov or 703-246-5758.
