Salona Park Task Force Continues to Review Public Comment

More than two weeks after the Salona Park Task Force hosted a public meeting at the McLean Community Center on the future of Salona Park, officials are still combing through hundreds of comments submitted by the public on the future use of the park.

Dranesville District Supervisor John Foust said the task force will continue to read through the submitted comments before moving forward with a recommendation.

"They are working diligently," Foust said.

The task force is charged with making a recommendation to the Fairfax County Park Authority with a plan for the future use of Salona, a historical site in McLean. Although the land is privately owned, Fairfax County purchased a conservation easement on the property six years ago, which permits a portion of the land to be used as public park space.

Foust said he anticipates the task force will make a recommendation to the park authority by the end of the year.
