The Fairfax Center Area Study  

Fairfax Center Area Study Map The Fairfax Center Area Study is a multi-phase planning study to examine current recommendations and existing conditions within the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan. 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 Board of Supervisors adopted new guidance for the Fairfax Center Area in the county's Comprehensive Plan in 1982 and established a vision for the approximately 5,500-acre area. Since its adoption, the area has evolved into a thriving employment center within the county with a diverse community. Through the use of an incentive-based implementation strategy, the Plan continues to achieve its vision of a high-quality mix-of-uses suburban center.
