Fairfax County recently concluded a major step in the
re-assessment of the Seven Corners area. The Seven Corners
Visioning and Study, which took place from 2012 to 2015,
included a community task force that invited local residents,
property and business owners, community and civic
organizations, and others to participate in an open
discussion about the future of Seven Corners. Other groups
contributing to the effort included an Opportunity Area C
Special Working Group, a Land Use and Transportation Task
Force, a Quality of Life Working Group, and a Connectivity
Working Group. Each explored aspects of the opportunities and
challenges facing Seven Corners and provided for the
community to share their ideas. The task force completed its
recommendations in March 2015.
More information on the Task Force vision and process can be
found on the Fairfax
County Office of Community Revitalization website.
County staff presented the final recommendations of the
Seven Corners CBC Study to the Baileys Crossroads Seven
Corners Revitalization Corporation (3/17/2015) and Mason
District Land Use Committee (3/24/2015). Click
