RECURRING:

“Get Dangerously Savvy About the Draft 2040 Comp Plan – Land Use, Housing, and Mobility Chapters.”

Are you interested in Land Use, Transportation or Data Centers, but don’t know how they are decided on? Are you frustrated by the lack of input that you have? Do you feel that decisions are made are made without citizen input and that you only find out about them after everything is decided?

This Civics 101 Presentation is from our League Member Charlie Grymes. He will fill you in on the process of developing land use decisions, in a strategic plan or a comprehensive plan, and how the Board of Supervisors and the Planning Commission work together to accomplish their goals. This is for you, whether you live in Prince William or Fauquier. We will be having a series of workshops beginning in September, every Wednesday morning, from 10 – 11. Please register using SignUp Genius. There is a link to the previous webinar on SignUp Genius, if you would like to “catch up” on what we are talking about.

Black Lives Matter (BLM) Warrenton Vigil
Saturdays, 10:00 – 10:45, Warrenton Court House
The vigil continues, and with the end of restrictions limiting participants, it is open to all. The League is committed to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and also to full and open citizen participation through voter registration and education.

Many meetings are now being held in-person, outside. None of these at this time are scheduled as indoor meetings. Use SignUp Genius to register for our meetings and you will be given up-to-date information as to the time and place. If they are Zoom meetings, registration confirmation will include Zoom information.
