The Plan

This plan was developed by the Economic Advisory Commission, along with county staff, and the Board of Supervisors adopted it at their March 3, 2015, meeting. This new plan will help to facilitate our economic success by charting:

  • Vision and goals to guide economic growth and success
  • Strategies to achieve goals
  • Specific actions to make the county successful

The strategy focuses on high-level policy recommendations, integrated with the county's overall vision and mission, to help the county to expand and diversify the economy, and it focuses on six goals:

  1. Further diversifying our economy
  2. Creating places where people want to be
  3. Improving the speed, consistency, and  predictability of the county’s development  review process
  4. Investing in natural and physical  infrastructure
  5. Achieving economic success through education and social equity
  6. Increasing the agility of county government

Summaries are available for the public outreach that was conducted.

For more information about the plan, contact the Office of the County Executive at 703-324-2531, TTY 711, or by email.

Why a Plan Is Needed

The county faces challenges to its continued economic success, including:

  • Fewer federal jobs due to recession and sequestration
  • Job recovery that is focused on new sectors, such as health care, retail, and hospitality
  • Higher office vacancy rates

The Plan Explained

Deputy County Executive Robert Stalzer and Eta Davis discuss the plan on the "Planning Commmission Roundtable."
