The Town Council reinstated the Citizen of the Year Award at their April 3, 2019 meeting. The award was awarded annually from 1992 through 1997. A plaque with the recipients' names engraved upon it still hangs in the Women's Club.
For the nomination process the Fairfax Parks and Recreation Commission (PARC) will receive nominations from the public for the award. The nomination period will be open from June 1 - August 1, 2019. After reviewing the nominations, PARC will recommend 3 nominees to a Council subcommittee comprised of the Mayor and Vice Mayor, who will select one of the three nominees as Citizen of the Year. The award will be presented at the September or October Council meeting.
If you would like to nominate a fellow citizen (all nominees must live in Fairfax) please print and fill out the form below and submit to Town Hall or email to Maria Baird at email@example.com by August 1, 2019.
