EVENTS

October 31 through December 2: Fabric of Families Exhibit
ArtSpace Herndon

In the 1960s, hometown newspapers chronicled the barest details of family milestones in columns headed "births, marriages, deaths." Expanding on those three topics, artists were asked to choose a family member to celebrate in three pieces of fiber art. Beginning by selecting an item of clothing, linen or similar that belonged to that person, artists were asked to incorporate a piece of that item in each of three creations honoring the early childhood, early adulthood, and later life of their relative. Visit ArtSpace Herndon to see the stories of these individuals.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) recently completed the evaluation of alternatives for a new bicycle and pedestrian facility in Tysons. The selection of the preferred alternative included an extensive public outreach process. The bicycle/pedestrian facility selected for final design and construction (pictured) includes an off-road shared use path along Old Meadow Road from Route 123 to the Dolley Madison Apartments and a bicycle/pedestrian bridge across the Capital Beltway (I-495) adjacent to the Dolley Madison Apartments and the Encore Condominiums with a terminus at the existing shared use path along Tysons One Place within the Tysons Corner Center.

VDOT will hold design workshops during the dates and times listed below to work with the community on refining the design elements of the facility, focusing primarily on the bridge across the Beltway and the approaches to the bicycle and pedestrian bridge. During the workshops, VDOT will gather public input and discuss details on security, tree screening, aesthetics, lighting and architectural treatments that can be accommodated within VDOT standards and the project budget.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

"Forward to Police" Feature on Nextdoor
 
Fairfax County residents using Nextdoor can now forward their Crime & Safety posts and Urgent Alerts directly to us online. Nextdoor is a free and private social network for neighborhoods. This new feature called "Forward to Police" allows residents to share information regarding safety and criminal activity in their neighborhoods with our crime prevention officers.

The Fairfax County Police Department began partnering with Nextdoor in January 2016 to help improve Countywide and neighbor-to-neighbor communications. It is important to note, however, that this new feature is supplemental, and not intended to replace the use of the police's 9-1-1 and non-emergency reporting systems.

If you are interested in joining your neighborhood's Nextdoor website, visit www.nextdoor.com and enter your address.

More information about the "forward to police" feature is available online at http://bit.ly/2ilvvUv
Tree Care Information
Fairfax County Urban Forest Management Division 

Hypoxylon canker is a fatal disease of already stressed trees; it is unable to colonize healthy wood. The disease affects hardwoods, particularly red oaks and maples.

Close up of a silvery-grey Hypoxylon canker and darker fruiting structures (black dots).
Diagnostics:
Hypoxylon canker on a young maple tree.
Silvery-grey or black flat patches on bark in long, vertical sections. These dark patches may be overlooked as decaying wood with bark sloughing off. Affected trees may have dieback in crowns or reduced numbers of live branches.


Prevention is the solution for reducing damage from this disease.  Keep trees healthy by watering, pruning only during dormancy, and applying mulch properly.

For more information about trees and tree care, visit   http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dpwes/environmental/ufmdmain.htm or call the Fairfax County Urban Forest Management Division at 703-324-1770, TTY 711.
Code Compliance Corner
Signs in the Highway Program

State law prohibits the posting of signs on state rights-of-way. On July 1, 2013, Fairfax County initiated the Signs in the Highway Program to assist the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) by removing illegal signs from selected major roads, including advertising, political, real estate, and other signs.

Signs are regularly picked up every week between Tuesday and Thursday by the Sheriff's Community Labor Force but are not cleaned up based on public complaints and will not be removed from neighborhood streets, only selected major roads across the County.

Citizens may help by creating or joining a VDOT Adopt-a-Highway group to remove signs from their neighborhood streets and nearby roads.
