Fairfax County is creating Urban Design Guidelines for the Richmond Highway corridor. The Guidelines provide details on many of the recommendations described in the Embark Comprehensive Plan including the appearance and function of streets, parks and plazas, and other elements of the public realm.
To kick this project off, the County invites everyone in the community to participate in an Urban Design Workshop to share their design ideas for Richmond Highway.

Have a smart home renovation, DIY project, or landscape inspiration to show? Show off your home, yard (or both!), it’s up to you. You pick what to show and what is off-limits. Just backyard, only kitchen, main floor, etc.
Contact email@example.com to be added to the tour map.
The tour, hosted by the JMCA, was named for Al & Sandy Snyder in 2013. The Snyders bought their first home as newlyweds in Jefferson Manor in 1947. They raised their three children here and lived in the Manor until 2011.
The tour will start and end at 2803 Fairhaven Ave, Alexandria, VA. Join neighbors for an after-tour happy hour hosted by the Davis family at 2803 Fairhaven Ave.
Done with your spring cleaning and have a few things left over? Set up your front yard or driveway for the JMCA Community Yard Sale!
People with a small number of items to sell are invited to join the community area at 6020 Monticello Road. This location will also feature a “Name Your Own Price” section where 100% of proceeds go to The Red Cross.
For you bargain hunters, get excited to walk around, talk to neighbors, and score some great finds. We will have signs and advertising this year, but feel free to do your own as well.
In the spirit of past fundraisers, participating homes are invited to donate a percentage of sales to charity. We suggest at least 10%. Last year, we donated more than $400. Let’s beat that!
Contact Chair of the JMCA Board Kay Floyd – firstname.lastname@example.org – with any questions, to join the community area, and for information on how to donate.
