Federation Inclement Weather Policy

Next Federation Membership Meeting

Thursday, 20 December 2018, 7:30 PM

Since that short snow fall last month canceled our November meeting, we are excited to present that very important program at this month's meeting.

This Public Safety presentation shares the results of both the Fairfax County Independent Police Auditor and the Civilian Review Panel. You may see the program announcement here (link to file 2) and review the entire presentation here. (link to file 3) Discussions and questions are encouraged.

Besides some announcements, the Board will be putting to the membership for discussion and vote four resolutions:

  • Resolution on Ratifying the ERA - The Federation urges the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia to ratify and affirm the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution of the United States
  • Resolution on FCPS Strategic Plan - The Federation commends the new Superintendent, recommends Fairfax County Public Schools create manageable strategic initiatives, engage in "best practices", and establish a Department of Strategic Planning and Innovation.
  • Resolution on Lighting Ordinance - The Federation supports Fairfax County streetlight conversions to LED, encourages lighting industry best practices, and requests monitoring artificial blue light emissions on ocular health, circadian systems and animal species.
  • Resolution on Supporting the Flood Plain Ordinance - The Federation urges the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors to deny amendments to the comprehensive plan which may create adverse impacts to local environment and it supports the Environmental Quality Advisory Council position to deny a proposed change to the Comprehensive Plan.
As always, Federation meetings are open to the public - bring an interested neighbor or another officer in your association.
