The City of Fairfax is developing the Bike Fairfax City bicycle transportation plan and is looking for input on future priorities for bicycle routes throughout the City. You are invited to complete a short survey and provide feedback on a map about your priorities: https://fairfax.altaplanning.cloud

This plan seeks to identify a connected bicycle network throughout the City and to prioritize future projects such as new bike lanes, trails, and intersection improvements to connect neighborhoods, activity centers, and other key destinations such as schools and transit centers.

The survey and map will be open for feedback from residents, visitors, employees, and others in the Fairfax community for the next few weeks. This fall, there will be additional opportunities for feedback on the draft plan.

If you have questions or would like more information, visit the project website (www.fairfaxva.gov/bikeplan) or contact us by email ([email protected]) or phone (703-385-7810).

Thank you, and we hope to hear from you!

**INFORMATION FOR CITY OF FAIRFAX BUSINESSES**

In response to the challenges our local business community is facing with impacts from the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the City of Fairfax will be allowing greater flexibility in the size and placement of temporary signage to allow businesses to communicate changes in their operations to customers, as well as extending the period of time that businesses can conduct temporary outdoor sales events as some businesses may choose to meet their customers outside of a building for pick-up service, etc..

**The provisions for “announcement signs,” as described in Section 4.6.12.B of the Zoning Ordinance, are modified as follows:
- Maximum square footage for the total amount of signage is increased from 32 to 64 square feet
- Signs may be located on a building, but may also be located elsewhere on the property provided they do not obstruct visibility for safe entry and exit from the property
- Signs utilizing these flexible provisions may remain in place concurrent with the City’s Declaration of Local Emergency (which is in effect through June 10, 2020 unless sooner rescinded or otherwise modified)
- The application and fee has been waived for these temporary signs for duration of the City’s Declaration of Local Emergency

**The provisions for “retail sales events and promotions,” as described in Section 3.5.6.C.1(b) of the Zoning Ordinance, are modified as follows:
- Outdoor sales events may be conducted concurrently with the City’s Declaration of Local Emergency (which is in effect through June 10, 2020 unless sooner rescinded or otherwise modified).
- Signs associated with the outdoor sales event should comply with the announcement sign provisions described above
- No application or fee is required for these temporary outdoor sales events
