2232 Review

The term 2232 Review derives from the Code of Virginia Section 15.2-2232 . Fairfax County's 2232 review process determines the compatibility of proposed public facilities with the locational guidelines established in the Comprehensive Plan. Specifically, this process determines if the general or approximate location, character, and extent are in substantial accord with the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan. Enlargements, changes of use, and other changes to public areas may also be subject to 2232 review process.
