About this Site
Fauquier County (pronounced faw-KEER) has taken a very serious look over the past several months at how technology can be used to benefit our citizens and employees. This new website, launched in March 2002, is the product of a well-thought-out plan for increasing services, and making information accessible without regards to the time of day (or night!).
Our website has been designed for easy navigation, and to help citizens find information quickly. We've also included a large amount of information for visitors and potential businesses that can be accessed with a click or two.
The Site is broken into four main parts:
- Business (the Business web site is maintained by the Economic Development Department)
- Visitors (the Visitors web site is maintained by the Economic Development Department)
Within the four areas, you will find easy-to-follow links to internal and external web pages.
We've included a well-organized Sitemap to help you find what you're looking for.
Most pages have links in one of four places:
- Top of Page
- Left Hand Column
- Search Box (typically located in the bottom center of a page)
- Within the body of the page
