The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will hear a presentation from the Private Sector Energy Task Force Tuesday detailing how the county can begin to become greener and energy efficient.
The task force, which is chaired by Leo Schefer, president of the Washington Airports Task Force, is expected to make a series of recommendations to supervisors. The recommendations may include mapping out how the county intends to meet its goal of a carbon-neutral Tysons Corner by 2030. The task froce also support incentives for property owners to invest in sustainable and green improvements to new and existing buildings in the county.
Later in the afternoon, the board will conduct a public comment period regarding the transportation-funding plan for needs in Tysons Corner.
According to the Fairfax County Planning Commission, there is a need for $3 billion in infrastructure improvements over the next 40 years. These improvements will help a redeveloped Tysons become the county’s “new downtown,” as planning commission officials have said.
