Tysons Comprehensive Plan Amendment
Preliminary Dialogue with County Staff
Spring Hill Elementary School
8201 Lewinsville Rd., McLean, VA 22102
The public is invited to a preliminary dialogue with Fairfax County staff on a proposed amendment to the Comprehensive Plan for Tysons. The current version of the Tysons Plan, adopted in 2010, recommends that additional work and studies be completed, such as detailed urban design guidelines and a funding plan for transportation improvements. Over the past three years, many of these recommended studies and plan implementation efforts have been completed, and staff is proposing updates to the Comprehensive Plan to reflect this work.
On Monday, October 7 at 7:30 p.m., County staff will kick off the Plan amendment process with a presentation of proposed changes to the implementation, land use, and urban design sections of the Plan. Staff will also answer questions and listen to your comments on the proposals. An initial draft and summary of Plan updates will be posted prior to the meeting on the Tysons Comprehensive Plan Amendments page. Members of the public will also be able to submit comments through that page as well. Materials from the October 7 session will also be posted on the web.
A second dialogue with County staff will be held in early November to allow for additional public participation and further revision of the draft amendment.
Background: The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has authorized a series of three Plan amendments for Tysons that are will reconcile the Plan text and maps with the studies and planning activities that have been completed to date.
