The West Springfield Governmental Center offers residents and charitable, service, professional, and civic groups in Fairfax County the opportunity to reserve meeting space in the Community Room free of charge.
This room can hold up to 60 people and contains one podium, a projection screen, a white board, and a television equipped with cable and a VCR. Authorized uses of this room include meetings, conferences, seminars, lectures, civil ceremonies, and debates (it is not available for parties, showers, etc.).
All organizations wishing to reserve the Community Room must complete an application, available at the link below, and e-mail or fax it to Supervisor Herrity's Office.
It is recommended that you first call the office to determine if your desired date/time is available. Once you have sent in your completed form, please call and confirm your reservation at 703-451-8873 or e-mail the office at Springfield@fairfaxcounty.gov.
Please note the following:
- The room is scheduled on a first come first served basis.
- Residents and groups may reserve the Community Room no sooner than the first day of the month prior to their event; it cannot be used on a regular basis.
- Groups will be limited to one (1) regular use per month.
- Official governmental use of the Community Room may supercede a reservation made by an organization. We apologize for any inconvenience--every effort will be made to give as much notice as possible if this occurs.
