Land Use Expert to Offer Insights for the Future of Tysons Free Presentation on Tuesday, April 17, at 7 p.m.
An internationally-known transit-oriented development expert will offer his insights on making Tysons more dynamic, livable and workable on Tuesday, April 17, from 7 to 9 p.m., in the auditorium of the Capital One Building, 1680 Capital One Drive, McLean. The public is invited to this free presentation; and directions to the event can be found online at www.capitalone.com/careers/organization/loc/mclean.php.
Robert Cervero, Ph.D., will be speaking, and his presentation also will address how the influence of density, diversity and design of land uses could result in changes to commuting patterns and higher transit ridership rates in Tysons. Afterwards, Stephen Fuller, director of the Center for Regional Analysis at George Mason University, will join Cervero for a question-and-answer session.
The Tysons Land Use Task Force, George Mason University’s Schools of Management and Public Policy and the Tysons Transportation Association (TYTRAN) are sponsoring this event.
Cervero, who chairs the Department of City and Regional Planning at the University of California, Berkeley, is the author of six books and hundreds of articles on transit and related topics. He is also a recipient of the Dale Prize for Excellence in Urban Planning Research.
The Tysons Land Use Task Force will make recommendations to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission on revising the 1994 Tysons Corner Comprehensive Plan.
The task force’s planning principles, meeting schedules, presentations and additional resources can be found at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dpz/tysonscorner.
