The Joint Facilities Advisory Commission (JFAC) is an advisory body jointly appointed by the County Board and the School Board. This was a recommendation within the 2015 Community Facilities Study. The mission of the JFAC is to provide input to the Boards on capital facilities needs assessment, capital improvement plans and long range facility planning for both the Arlington County Government and Arlington Public Schools.
The JFAC organizational structure currently includes two subcommittees — the Buck Subcommittee and the Carlin Springs Subcommittee. All committee and subcommittee agendas, meeting documents and minutes are posted in the table below as they become available.
