Designation Proceeds On Track

(Prepared August 3, 1999)

By Lorraine Drolet
Chair, Fairlington Historical Designation Committee

The on site survey for the six South Fairlington villages will take place May 9, 1998. Volunteers will meet at 9:30 am at the South Fairlington Community Complex, 3308 South Stafford Street. With the completion of this survey, the light at the end of the tunnel is in clear view as it shines on a plaque reading, "Fairlington has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places for its historic and architectural significance by the United States Department of the Interior."

As we proceed down that track, the next stop involves the public comment period. Then the State of Virginia will send letters to the homeowners notifying them of Fairlington's nomination to the Virginia Landmark Register and the National Register. The letter will describe the process by which the homeowner may comment on or object to listing in the Registers. The Committee is on schedule for completing the survey, photographs, and data entry of survey information into the State's Integrated Preservation Software Program. We expect to submit Fairlington's nomination to the State in July.

Mark your calendar and join us on May 9. If you are interested in learning more about the architectural features of Fairlington, taking part in the survey is a great way to do so. Volunteers participating in the North Fairlington survey found it to be a rewarding and enjoyable experience.
