Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Appoints Tysons Service District Advisory Board Members
Feb. 12, 2013
At its Feb. 12 meeting, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors appointed members to the Tysons Transportation Service District Advisory Board. This 17-member group will recommend an annual tax rate for the service district, as well as help to prioritize transportation improvements in Tysons to be funded by the district.
The district’s tax rate will be set as part of the upcoming budget, and in 2013 taxes will only be paid for half the year, starting July 1.
The district was created on Jan. 8, 2013, to help pay for the more than $3.1 billion in new roads and public transit needed in Tysons during the next 40 years. It is expected to generate $253 million — or about 8 percent of the total $3.1 billion.
Commercial properties make up about 83 percent of the service district's almost $11.5 billion in total assessed property value.
