• Chamber Adds Support for Residential Community

    This week the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce sent a letter of support to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors (BOS) for the proposed Fairfax County Zoning Ordinance Amendment for alternative lending institutions.

    Alternative lending institutions, commonly known as pay day and car title lenders, prey on naïve and already-fragile consumers; target military communities such as Fort Belvoir; and seek out commercial revitalization districts (CRD) due to lower rents and the large number of free-standing commercial-use buildings.

    In following with its mission statement - to develop and promote balanced economic growth and business opportunities in harmony with the community -  the Chamber is supporting its residential community, honoring local military and championing for the central Springfield CRD. The Chamber is committed to positive growth for its community.

    In its letter the Chamber urged a vote of support for the amendment when the BOS takes up the issue in November.
