Proposed Comprehensive Plan Amendments Scheduled for Public Hearing

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 to review the staff report. Staff reports are in portable document format (PDF). You will need Adobe Reader version 6.0 or greater installed on your computer to view these files.
