Transit-Oriented Development Workshop Set for Jan. 17

The Fairfax County Planning Commission will hold a public workshop about transit-oriented development on Wednesday, Jan. 17, at 8:15 p.m. in the Board Auditorium, Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax.

The workshop continues the work of the Planning Commission’s Transit-Oriented Development Committee, which recently completed seven months of public meetings. The committee began work in May to refine principles for transit-oriented development in Fairfax County. The public participated in the meetings by listening to presentations and discussions, giving presentations, asking questions and providing comments. The consensus vision achieved through this process is available at The committee’s work also included development of a draft Policy Plan objective and policy for the Comprehensive Plan, which is the guiding document for all development in Fairfax County.

The public may continue to offer comments on transit-oriented development through the Planning Commission’s Web page at The next step is the Board of Supervisors’ authorization for staff to prepare a transit-oriented development amendment to the Comprehensive Plan. This proposed amendment will then be considered by the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors, with public hearings scheduled before both groups.
