Morning Poll: What do you think of Lee District being renamed Franconia District?

Board of Supervisors Franconia District Supervisor Rodney Lusk at the Board meeting last week (via Fairfax County)

The name for Lee District has officially changed.

Last week, the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the name “Franconia District” for the Springfield, Franconia, Kingstowne, and Hybla Valley area represented by Rodney Lusk, who brought forward the proposal after community input.

Based on feedback from the community, Franconia was the most agreed-upon name to replace Lee, which fell out of favor due to its possible association with Confederate general Robert E. Lee.

While the new moniker took effect immediately, the approved board matter directed the county executive to report back to the board on what administrative work will be needed to facilitate the change and an expected timeline.

The board also voted to assign staff to reach out to businesses, nonprofits, community groups and other entities that may be impacted by the change and recommend possible strategies to support them.

So, what do you think of the new name?
