About

From David Bulova websiteThe 37th District, which was re-drawn during the 2011 redistricting session,  is the heart of Fairfax. It takes in all of the City of Fairfax, including the City’s historic downtown district. From there it stretches south to the Norfolk Southern Railroad and west along I-66 and Lee Highway to encompass parts of Centreville.  The district includes several vibrant business districts, attractive multi-family and townhouse developments, and single-family subdivisions with beautiful trees.  According to the 2010 U.S. Census, 80,255 residents live in the 37th District.  There are numerous historic properties like the Blenheim House in Fairfax City (c. 1858-60) and Mount Gilead in historic Centreville (c. 1785).  It is also home to the historic Fairfax Courthouse and the Fairfax County Government Center, which is the county seat for the nearly one million residents of Fairfax County.The 37th District includes the following public schools: Daniels Run Elementary, Eagle View Elementary, Fairfax High School, Fairfax Villa Elementary, Lanier Middle School, London Towne Elementary, Oak View Elementary, Colin Powell Elementary, Providence Elementary, and Mosby Woods Elementary. Many families choose to live in the 37th District, because of the quality of these schools.Of course, the largest academic institution located in the 37th District is George Mason University which was originally chartered in 1960, and now has grown to the largest university in Virginia’s world-renowned higher education system. The interaction between the university students and the local population makes the 37th an unusually great place to live.

Development

No vacancy: some Northern Virginia communities are deciding they’re full Greater GreaterWashington by Canaan Merchant  July 11, 2018Northern Virginia held local elections in May, and population growth was foremost on the mind of many of those running. Some candidates even pondered whether or not there should be a population limit in various parts in the region.David Meyer, mayor of Fairfax City (a small independent city in the middle of the much-larger Fairfax County), ran unopposed this year like many others on the ballot. Meyer told Antonio Olivo of the Washington Post that too much growth is one of the city's biggest challenges.
”[Fairfax City] has been mostly focused on the potential effects of a handful of building projects around the city. Among them: a $150 million development near the Fairfax Circle intersection that will replace a long-vacant strip mall with new stores, restaurants and about 400 townhouses and apartments.
“There is an understandable concern among the citizens about how many people should be in the city,” said Meyer, who replaced Silverthorne in a 2017 special election. “The real challenge for leadership is the question of balance, finding that right mix.”
