Public Invited to Presentation on Transportation Planning for the
Future of Tysons
On Monday, Nov. 26, at 7 p.m., the Tysons Land Use Task Force invites the public to attend a special expanded meeting to discuss transportation planning for the future of Tysons. The event will be held in the Marshall High School cafeteria, 7731 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church.
The presentation will describe future transportation options that are being considered for traveling into, out of and within the area, as well as the analysis for evaluating these options. Don Vary from Cambridge Systematics, the task force’s transportation consultant, will deliver the presentation. After the talk, the public is invited to offer comments or ask questions.
The public’s comments at this event will help the task force to shape its recommendations for updating the Tysons land use plan. This event is the group’s latest effort to get public input. Since 2006, it has conducted more than 50 public meetings, workshops and Web-based surveys. This is the most extensive public outreach effort ever conducted by the county to revise a land use plan.
Next year, the task force will present its recommendations to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and the Planning Commission for approval. The updated plan will guide the area’s development for the next 30-40 years.
Based on extensive public comments, Tysons is envisioned to be a vibrant urban center, with walkable streets, mixed-use neighborhoods, inclusive housing choices, lively open spaces, distinctive architecture and other community amenities.
