On Tuesday, Feb. 2, at 4:30 p.m., the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission will hold a joint meeting on the draft Comprehensive Plan amendment for Tysons. The meeting will be held in Conference Rooms 9 and 10, Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax.

At the meeting, the board and commission will discuss the status of the draft plan, as well as major issues that are currently under review.

The public may provide comments on the draft plan until Thursday, Feb. 11. Comments can be submitted via e-mail or in-person during the Planning Commission Tysons Corner Committee’s Feb. 11 meeting. To speak at this meeting, residents must register online or call 703-324-2865, TTY 703-324-7951, before 3 p.m. on Feb. 11.

The latest draft of the plan amendment is available online. The Planning Commission is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the completed plan and zoning amendments on March 24 and the Board of Supervisors is scheduled to conduct its public hearing on May 25.

Because four new Metro stations will be built in Tysons, the plan uses an approach called transit-oriented development or TOD. Tysons will be transformed from a suburban office park into a livable urban area; it will become a place where people live, work and play — not only work or shop.
