A Message from the Vision Forward Team, March 16, 2021 Last fall, we chose to hit the “pause” button on Vision Forward, outside of some zoning and permitting work that is currently underway. The rezoning effort is now 65% – 70% complete. The elders decided to complete the rezoning in order to have the flexibility to make important upgrades to our building and potentially pursue other opportunities, such as a new partnership with a childcare provider. Final rezoning plans are being submitted to Fairfax County and we anticipate a summer hearing date. As part of the process, we have sent letters to our neighbors in the surrounding community inviting them to hear our plans for our property and ask any questions they may have. That meeting will take place on March 25 and is intended only for those who received the letter. Our January update said that we are exploring a potential partnership with a childcare provider whose mission is faith-based education and that we would ask for your feedback before any decisions are made to move forward. To that end, we are working on a new website that will:
- List the upgrades we need to make to our building with a cost estimate.
- Give details about this new childcare provider with a cost estimate.
- Describe how both of those projects align with our Vision to be God’s heart to this community.
- Provide a means for you to give us your feedback.
