Fairfax Forward is the regular process for Comprehensive Plan review and includes community engagement. The Comprehensive Plan provides long-range guidance for land use, transportation, public facilities and services, parks and recreation, housing, heritage resources, and the environment. The process strives to identify the latest planning trends related to current issues, ensuring that planning language and policies are up to date and relevant to decision makers. Fairfax Forward seeks to expand public participation by integrating contemporary outreach methods in the planning process.

The 2013 Pilot Work Program lays out the review schedule for the Comprehensive Plan between 2013 and 2016 for activity centers, neighborhoods, site specific, and other policy guidance. Priority is given to amendments that advance major policy objectives, address emerging community concerns, and provide a platform to better implement the Concept for Future Development.
