Let Fairfax City Council Know You Support the FY25 Proposed Budget

April 2 2024

Historic Fairfax City Inc. is pleased to support the City of Fairfax’s FY25 proposed budget that includes funding for additional staff in the Office of Historic Resources. This is the first time in over 20 years that a proposed new staff member would be added to the office!

The Historic Resources Office currently operates with only one full-time director, three part-time staff, and a handful of dedicated volunteers. Together this small but mighty team is responsible for the preservation and management of three historic properties within the City of Fairfax, including the Fairfax Museum and Visitor Center and Historic Blenheim. HFCI is grateful to the City for showing its support to protect and preserve the legacy of Fairfax.
