Frequently Asked Questions

Why is the county looking at the Fairfax Center Area?

Plan guidance for the Fairfax Center Area has not undergone a comprehensive review since its initial adoption in 1982. Since then, the area has evolved into a thriving activity center to live, work, and play. A primary goal of the Fairfax Center Area Study is to evaluate the Comprehensive Plan for this area to verify that factual information is current and that recommendations remain consistent with current policy and practice.

How will the county evaluate a large area like the Fairfax Center Area?

The study is divided into two phases based largely on planned land use guidance. The first phase looks at the 'Transition' areas on the periphery of the study area. Staff will work within each supervisor district to gather input that will assist with determining what changes may need to be made. The second phase focuses on area-wide recommendations and the 'Suburban Center' area found in the center of the study area. Staff will work with an area-wide taskforce to gather input and discuss proposed Plan changes.
