Will you be holding zMOD community meetings in each of the 9 magisterial districts in Fairfax? With a county of 1.2 million people and 400 square miles, it would be good to hold more sessions to make sure you're reaching all interested parties. I'm in Hunter Mill District, where much of the new development is ongoing, and my community would like to hear from you. Thanks!
