Fairfax County to Waive Fees for Vienna Police Station Project

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has decided to waive the county building and inspection fees for Vienna’s new police station.

Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn and Chairman Jeff McKay proposed the board matter on Tuesday (Feb. 11).

Alcorn said that Vienna town officials requested the waivers.

The Town of Vienna is currently designing a new police station that will have a community room and more space.

“This new building will provide the opportunity for the Town to place all their police functions in one building with upgraded technology and security,” the board matter says. “The building is also being designed to accommodate the town’s emergency planning needs and will include additional community space for the town’s residents.”

While the new station is under construction, the police plan to use space in Town Hall and have a temporary station at 440 Beulah Road NE.

“In 2020, Vienna will be submitting plans and applications for this project which require numerous permits and inspections from Fairfax County,” according to the board matter. “The Town of Vienna has requested, and we support, waiving all county building and inspection fees applicable to the Vienna Police Facility Construction Project to best serve the community.”
