2008 BRAC Area Plans Review

What is BRAC?

Base Realignment and Closure, or BRAC, is the process the Department of Defense uses to reorganize its facilities to more efficiently and effectively support its forces, increase operational readiness and facilitate new ways of doing business. As a result of BRAC 2005, DoD will be moving thousands of jobs from leased office space and other facilities in the Washington metro region to Fort Belvoir (including the Engineer Proving Ground) in southern Fairfax County, and to Mark Center in Alexandria.APR Logo

Why is Fairfax County looking to change its Comprehensive Plan?

The Comprehensive Plan guides how land is used. The significant increase in jobs at Fort Belvoir will affect housing, transportation and public services, as well as create potential opportunities for new jobs, goods and services in large areas of the county in the Springfield, Lee, and Mount Vernon Districts. The purpose of the BRAC Area Plans Review (APR) effort was to consider whether the Comprehensive Plan should be amended to respond to the DoD decision to move jobs to Fort Belvoir.
