The Fairfax Chamber of Commerce has decided to host a Community Informational Meeting on the Terrapin Crossroads project. The meeting will begin at 6:30 PM today (September 1) at the Fairfax Pavilion. All members of the public are invited to learn about the project and will have the opportunity to ask questions about the proposed performing arts project called Terrapin Crossroads.
The agenda will start with information about the roles and responsibilities of elected and appointed officials that will hear the project and then a discussion of the permit process and the entitlements process. Next will be a presentation of the project description and then a question and answer session followed by public comment.
This is an informational meeting only. No action will be taken and to date Terrapin Crossroads has not had a single public hearing as it is still early in the process. There will be many opportunities to comment at public hearings in the future when decision makers will be asked to weigh in on the project.
