On Thursday, April 15, 7 to 9 p.m., the public is invited to a presentation on the preferred land use concept for a portion of the Baileys Crossroads Community Business Center (CBC).Based on public input,the concept will be presented at the Goodwin House Auditorium, 3440 South Jefferson Street, Falls Church. Parking is available in the visitors lot.

The concept is intended to stimulate revitalization of this area, as well as take advantage of the proposed streetcar route to run between the CBC and Pentagon City. It features more mixed-used development; easier pedestrian, bicycle and transit rider access; and increase green spaces. Future development also would be compatible with the surrounding neighborhoods.

It is envisioned that the densest development will be focused in the area near the future streetcar stop along South Jefferson Street on the north side of Leesburg Pike. This urban-style downtown will incorporate mixed-use buildings with ground-floor retail, a tree-lined grid of streets and a new arts center. A greenway will connect the north and south sides of Leesburg Pike.

The preferred concept will be used to recommend changes to Fairfax County’s Comprehensive Plan. Later this year, both the Fairfax County Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors will hold public hearings on these recommendations.

The preferred concept is based on public input on two previous conceptual options, incorporating desired elements from both. An 11-member Citizens’ Advisory Committee led the efforts to solicit public feedback.

The land use concept specifically covers the area to the south and east of the interchange of Leesburg Pike (Route 7) and Columbia Pike (Route 244) in the Baileys Crossroads Community Business Center area.
