Congratulations to Kaia Collins, who created the Fairfax history-themed panel that adorns the #Boulevard VI construction fence. Her work earned her a regional Gold Key Award from the Scholastics Art and Writing Competition! “I was inspired by the lasting grace and historical importance of these three buildings (City of Fairfax Regional Library, Historic Blenheim and Fairfax Museum and Visitor Center),” Kaia says. "The spliced look allows for them to be showcased and appreciated equally.” #LiveLifeConnected Boulevard VI #Art #Student #HighSchool #DigitalArt

New bike safety laws you should know about.
06/15/2021

New bike safety laws you should know about.

Share the road: There’s a new law hitting the books on July 1, 2021. Motorists will be required to change lanes, when safe to do so, to pass a bicyclist, even if that means crossing over a double yellow line. Secondly, bicyclists will be allowed to ride two abreast in a lane.

Here are a few general safety tips for motorists to help keep our roads safe for bicyclists:

• Avoid distractions while driving
• Always stop and look in both directions before turning right on red
• When turning left, look for oncoming bicyclists
• When approaching an intersection, pay close attention to your surroundings and look for anyone who may be crossing the street
• Use caution and double check your mirrors before making a right-hand turn
• Do not park or drive in bike lanes, if present
• If you’re parking on a roadway, check your side and rear-view mirrors for bicyclists before opening your door

Together, we can keep our roads safe, for everyone.

Fairfax City refuse/recycling service customers: recent changes to City Code have eliminated use of plastic bags for disposal of yard waste. The transition period for plastic bag use ends March 1, 2022 — but we encourage you to begin as soon as possible using alternatives such as paper bags or toters/trash cans for your yard waste disposal. (More than 60% of you already do.)

Why? Bags are processed with yard waste for mulch, and plastic shreds lower mulch quality — and introduce plastic into the environment. Microplastics are a danger to the environment, creatures, and humans. Other regional partners already have successfully enacted plastic-free yard waste collection.

You have options, including paper bags, reusable containers — and ways to keep much yard waste off your curb and doing good in your garden and yard. See the city website for information and options: https://www.fairfaxva.gov/Home/Components/News/News/11240/18

PHISHING SCAM ALERT

Please be aware of an ongoing phishing scam in which someone posing as city employees and elected officials is requesting gift cards. As a best practice, it is a good idea to examine the sender’s email address carefully. If anything appears “phishy,” delete the email. Do not respond, as this creates an opportunity for the scammer.

If you receive an email from an elected official or any city staff member that appears illegitimate, please report it to ithelp [at] fairfaxva.gov.

Thank you,
