Merrifield Implementation Updates
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 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 focused 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 was
editorial, and did not modify any land use or intensity changes for
Adopted on October 18, 2016.
