Reports for Proposed Comprehensive Plan Amendments Scheduled for
The Code of Virginia requires localities to review
their Comprehensive Plans at least once every five years. The
Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan is evaluated more frequently to
manage the dynamic changes in the County and to conduct Plan
maintenance. Plan amendments are initiated by a motion by the
Board of Supervisors. In order for an amendment to be adopted, it
must be the subject of a public hearing before the Planning
Commission and the Board of Supervisors. See the Planning Commission's Meeting Calendar for
information about currently scheduled Planning Commission public
hearings. The Board of Supervisors must vote to adopt the amendment
in order to change the Plan. Staff reports for the proposed
amendments scheduled for public hearing are listed below. Click on
the Plan amendment number that precedes the name of the amendment

- Newington Road - On July 28, 2015, the Board of
Supervisors (Board) authorized the consideration of a Comprehensive
Plan amendment for Newington Road in the Springfield Planning
District, Mount Vernon Magisterial Supervisor District. The adopted
Plan for this area recommends widening Newington Road to 4 lanes,
from Loisdale Road to Cinder Bed Road (including improving an
existing one-lane underpass under the CSX railroad tracks) and
upgrading the existing 2-lane segment, from Cinder Bed Road to
Telegraph Road, to meet current safety and design standards.
Improvements could include widening existing lanes, reducing
curves, adding sidewalks, bicycle facilities, turn lanes, or some
combination, where necessary. The existing plan does not include
adding lanes to this section of Newington Road. The Board requested
that staff consider the removal of all planned transportation
improvements, identified in the Comprehensive Plan and policy
documents, for the segment of Newington Road located between Cinder
Bed Road and Telegraph Road.
