Kathy Smith - Sully District Appointments
Posted on Nov 30th, 2015 Comments (0)
Jim Hart, as a member of Kathy Smith’s transition team, has contacted Virginia Run regarding positions available for numerous Sully District appointments to Fairfax County boards and commissions. 
 
Some of Michael's appointees will stay on, at least for a while, but there are a number of vacancies either immediately or in the short term.  Some have a Sully District member, some are vacant positions without a specific magisterial district, but which could be filled with a Sully resident.  Some boards have technical qualifications or other eligibility requirements, but most are not limited in that respect.  Some of the terms are up next month, most are staggered.
 
There are a variety of committees and boards.  Some of the positions are paid, some unpaid; some of them have a relatively minimal time commitment.  Here is a link to a list, with some explanations of what each board does:  http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/bacs/
 
Kathy wants to have a diverse geographic mix, also she wants the very best people irrespective of Republican or Democrat affiliation [genuinely].  Michael recognized that, and as you know he made a number of Democratic appointments over the years.  Kathy also wants to recruit new people who are willing to serve in some capacity, and wants to reach out to many communities.  Laura Floyd [laura@floyd.com] is going to be collecting resumes for the transition team.  There are a few FT and PT staff positions open in the Sully District supervisor's office, an easy commute from VR.
 
If you might be interested, or if you know of someone who might be, they should email a resume to Laura Floyd.  They may want to have a cover letter saying what boards or committees they would like to be considered for.   
 
I think that it can only help VR's quality of life to have more folks on the local boards and commissions.  And the resources of the VR community can benefit the entire county.  
 
New Flashing Crosswalk Beacon
Posted on Nov 16th, 2015 Comments (0)
In response to Virginia Run community concerns about the pedestrian crosswalk at Pleasant Valley Road and Wetherburn Drive, Virginia Department of Transportation and Fairfax County worked together with Delegate Tim Hugo and Supervisor Michael Frey to secure funding to construct a Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacon (RRFB) at this location.  Construction has been completed and the flashers will be activated soon.
 
Federal Highway Administration research has shown that Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacons enhance safety at unsignalized intersections and mid-block pedestrian crossings by increasing driver awareness of potential pedestrian conflicts.  They use an irregular flash pattern that is similar to emergency flashers on police vehicles.  The novelty and unique nature of the stutter flash elicits a greater response from drivers than traditional methods, increasing driver yielding behavior significantly.
 
However, it is important for pedestrians to understand that they have to push a button to actuate the flashers, and that they still have to watch for vehicles before stepping off the curb.  The flashing beacons do not compel drivers to stop like a red light would, they only advise them that pedestrians are present and wish to cross.
 
Additional information about RRFBs can be found on the FHWA website using the following link:
