Staff Report for the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan Amendment to Address Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act Requirements is Now Available
The Staff Report for the proposed countywide Comprehensive Plan Amendment to satisfy comprehensive planning requirements of Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act is now available. The proposed amendment will be the subject of public hearings before the Planning Commission at 8:15 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 7, 2004, and the Board of Supervisors at 4 p.m., Monday, Nov. 15, 2004. Both public hearings will be held in the Board Auditorium of the Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax.
The proposed amendment includes modifications to several sections of the county’s Policy Plan, including the addition of policies addressing watershed management planning, stormwater management and water quality controls for redevelopment, remediation of contaminated sites, tidal shoreline erosion control measures, boating and other tidal shoreline access structures, and the mitigation or compensation of losses of wetlands.

This supplement would include: a map of Chesapeake Bay Preservation Areas; a discussion of factors affecting water quality; the identification of water pollution sources in Fairfax County; a discussion of water quality conditions in Fairfax County; inventories of shoreline erosion conditions, shoreline erosion control structures and waterfront access sites; the identification of existing water quality policies, regulations and initiatives; and analyses and recommendations for actions relating to water pollution sources, infill development, redevelopment, shoreline erosion control and shoreline access.
