Fairfax County Supervisors to Mull Silver Line, Woodburn Replacement Tuesday
A public hearing on Phase 2 of Dulles Metrorail is set for 5 p.m. Tuesday, during board meeting in Fairfax.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing on the county’s role in Phase 2 of the Dulles Metrorail project at 5 p.m. Tuesday during their regularly scheduled meeting.
Fairfax County transportation officials held hearings during the last week to inform residents how the $2.7 billion project was being financed and to gather ideas for station names.
According to officials, Fairfax County will contribute anywhere from $900 million to $965 million for both phases of the construction.
On Tuesday, the board will cover the financing of the project, but station names, a popular topic in the Silver Line discussion, will not be part of the hearing. As of last week, 13,000 responses had been submitted to a survey seeking input on station names.
Also on the agenda, the board is expected to approve a resolution authorizing the sale of Fairfax County Economic Development authority bonds in an effort to replace the existing Woodburn Mental Health Center in Annandale and the construction of the Providence Community Center.
The board is expected to authorize the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority to loan nearly $3 million to Pathway Homes, a charitable organization that provides housing to adults with serious mental illnesses.
