The Merrifield Implementation Update  

On July 9, 2013, through the authorization of the 2013 Comprehensive Plan Work Program, the Board of Supervisors authorized consideration of a Comprehensive Plan amendment for the Merrifield Suburban Center, in the Providence District. The Merrifield Suburban Center is generally located south of Interstate 66, north of Woodburn road, west of Holmes Run, and east of Long Branch Stream Valley and Prosperity Avenue. The adopted Plan for the area recommends the development of two, interconnected core areas, which include the highest development intensities and are the most urban areas of the Merrifield Suburban Center. The core areas are the Transit Station Area, which includes the area south of the Dunn Loring - Merrifield Metrorail station, and the Town Center, located southwest of the intersection of Gallows Road and Lee Highway. The study will focus on reviewing and updating the existing Comprehensive Plan language regarding the Merrifield Suburban Center and will also assess the level of implementation of the Merrifield Suburban Center Comprehensive Plan Guidance. The scope of the study is editorial, and will not propose any land use or intensity changes for the area.

Additional information regarding development projects can be found on the Office of Community Revitalization's Merrifield website.
