Community Forum to Discuss Storm Water Management

Citizens for a Better City and the Falls Church Republican and Democratic Committees will host a question and answer session on storm water management in the City of Falls Church next Thursday, Feb. 28.

In 2009, the City Council appointed the Falls Church Watershed Advisory Committee from representatives of local businesses, civic and environmental organizations, city staff, and a paid consultant. This committee met seven times between October 2009 and December 2011. The result of the committee’s work, The Watershed Management Plan, was approved by the City Council in February 2012.

The panel at the community forum will feature Bill Hicks, director of Public Works; Dennis Szymanski, WAC member representing the Hillwood Neighborhood Association; Jason Douglas, WAC member at-large; and Bill Schellstede, WAC member representing the Environmental Services Council.

The event will take place at American Legion Post 130, 400 N. Oak St., Falls Church, from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. For more information contact Sally Ekfelt at
