    The Great Falls Citizens Association annual election was held June 10, and resulted in the election of four new directors: Matt Haley, Torsten Kracht, Dawn McPhee, and Zaheer Poptani,. Re-elected were President Eric Knudsen, Vice-President Bill Canis, and directors Ralph Apton, Jack Clark, Pam Grosvenor, Scott Knight, Philip Pifer, and Jennifer Semko.  

    The June 10 meeting was also an “Open Mic” forum at which community opinions on a number of topics were discussed. GFCA appreciated Great Falls residents' opinions on these topics in order to frame its agenda for the upcoming year.

    Continuing for a second year in their positions are Secretary Debbie Copito, Immediate Past President Jackie Taylor, and directors Ruth Carver, Wayne Foley, Bill Harvey, Ed Phillips, and Amy Stephan.  At the June 17 GFCA Board Meeting, Bud Thompson was elected as Treasurer and David Kondner was selected to fill an open Board seat.

    At the May 13 TownHall meeting, a county proposal to expand the Forestville Elementary School septic system to meet code requirements and prevent closing the school was discussed with members of the Capital Projects and Sustainable Design Office of the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS). On May 20, the GFCA Executive Board sent a letter to the Dranesville Supervisor and the Dranesville School Board Representative supporting the proposed FCPS recommendations. Assuming all approvals are obtained, design and construction might commence this summer. The current FCPS preference is for a gravity sewer routed through the middle of the Park Authority Nike site property. It would be limited to the minimum size necessary for the school to prevent any other sewer connections. The three other possible options not under active consideration are: replacing existing Park Authority athletic fields with a suitable septic field; several trucks per week pumping and hauling waste; or, a packaged waste treatment facility requiring a suitable storm water channel adjacent to the school and some waste material hauling by trucks.  The featured speaker: Steve Nicholson, Coordinator of Capital Projects and Sustainable Design, Office of Design and Construction, Fairfax County Public Schools.

    In January, the state Department of Environmental Quality approved the first phase Corrective Action Plan (CAP) that details the start of cleanup activities at the old Exxon station. GFCA provided active input to the final CAP. While we are not pleased with all elements of the CAP, substantial improvements have been made to the draft CAP released in the fall, and we are pleased that cleanup has begun.
