Fairfax Forward - The Fairfax Center Area Study
The Fairfax Center Area Study
The Fairfax Center Area Study [Plan Amendment (PA) 2013-III-FC1] is a multi-phase planning study to examine the Comprehensive Plan guidance for the Fairfax Center Area. The Fairfax Center Area comprises approximately 5,500 acres west of the City of Fairfax and east of Centreville, generally between Lee-Jackson Memorial Highway (Route 50) and Lee Highway (Route 29). The area has evolved from greenfields into a community of neighborhoods, retail, and employment. The Fairfax Center Area Study provides an opportunity to assess how the Fairfax Center Area will continue to evolve in the next 20-30 years .
The Board of Supervisors adopted Phase I of the Fairfax Center Area Study [PA 2013-III-FC1(A)] on December 2, 2014. This phase involved an evaluation of the Comprehensive Plan recommendations for the suburban neighborhood and low density residential areas along the edges of the study area. The adopted text can be found here. The second phase, currently underway, is evaluating the Suburban Center portion of the study area and the Area-wide guidance. An area-wide working group has been meeting monthly to discuss proposed Plan changes. Find out more about the progress of the study at the working group's meetings page..
