Well... it is amazing what can be accomplished when people come together for a common goal.
It seems the Board of Supervisors would like to go ahead on Tuesday with a vote about the "dance hall" amendment I wrote about the other day. The Planning Commission has heard the dance community. They would like to go back and re-work the amendment but the Supervisors have not yet deferred the vote.
This is what needs to happen: We need you to email the Supervisors and ask them to defer the vote and send the amendment back to the Planning Commission. If you live in Fairfax County, it is IMPERATIVE that you send an email. You may also call the representative of your zone. All of this will show them that going ahead with the vote will make their community very unhappy.

There is also time to sign the petition. We'd like to reach 5,000 signatures by Tuesday. You do not need to live in Fairfax County. There is an area where you can leave a comment and explain how you want to keep dancing in that area.
When I was studying for my social work degree I had a whole class on grass root efforts. This makes it all worth it.
