Community Council on Land Use Engagement


Goal

To produce a set of recommendations that would improve Fairfax County's public outreach and community engagement in the land use and development process.

Summary

The Community Council on Land Use Engagement was created by Chairman Sharon Bulova and is chaired by former Planning Commissioner Walter Alcorn. With the volume of information County residents receive in multiple ways, a message can be lost or the amount of information received is so voluminous as to be overwhelming. We all sometimes hear from residents, particularly in the area of land use, that they were unaware or felt uninformed about a pending decision before the Board which could have an impact on their community. While we do a lot of communicating, are we doing so in the most helpful and effective ways? These are the questions this Community Council will consider this Spring.
