Fairfax Forward - Submit An Idea to Amend the Work Program or Comprehensive Plan
The evaluation of the work program, which will begin following the process evaluation, will assess whether new studies should be added to the work program.
Public participation is essential to understanding community priorities and whether new studies should be scheduled. Anyone can submit a proposal to change the order of the studies on the work program, add a study to the work program, or amend a specific Comprehensive Plan recommendation. Prior to submitting a proposal, you are encouraged to contact the District Supervisor as well as Planning Division staff by calling 703-324-1380 or email our office. Proposals can be submitted March 31, 2014 through January 29, 2016. Submissions received after February 1, 2016 will be saved for consideration on future work programs.
