GSHS Agreement Online & Online Submission Instructions
Fairfax County is requiring an Agreement with the Gum Springs Historical Society (GSHS) in order to occupy space in the Gum Springs Community Center. Such an Agreement is a requirement for all non-profit organizations occupying space in a county-owned facility.
The Mount Vernon Magisterial District Supervisor is seeking feedback from the entire Gum Springs community prior to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approving the Agreement and has no objection for the Agreement being available to you online for your review and comment.

The President of the New Gum Springs Civic Association (Civic Association) has reviewed the Agreement along with the Gum Springs Community Center Advisory Board and Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood & Community Services. As a result of that review, additional language has been proposed. Click here to view the revised Agreement by the president.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns about the Agreement, please provide using the form below. All validated comment submissions will be consolidated and incorporated as one community response for further consideration by the Mount Vernon Magisterial District Supervisor.
