CBN is asking for member help to support an important proposal to redevelop the Paul VI High School property. The proposal is scheduled for consideration by the City of Fairfax City Council on Sept. 11. This redevelopment is a win-win for the community, local business, and the Diocese.
CBN Members are asked to attend the Council meeting and present their views that, as businesses with concerns in the City of Fairfax and in Northern Virginia, we encourage the redevelopment of Paul VI into mixed use residential and commercial space.
Council meetings begin at 7 p.m. and are held in Council Chambers located in Room 100 of the City Hall Annex, 10455 Armstrong Street.
