Do you have ideas on better ways to use land in Fairfax County? We’re open to suggestions. The South County Site-Specific Plan Amendment Process is underway. (“South County” includes the Braddock District.) It allows anyone to nominate changes to the Comprehensive Plan, our guiding document for land use and development decisions. This process runs through December 3 and it’s one of many ways the community can have a voice in how land is used in Fairfax County to ensure that our community continues to be an attractive, safe, and sustainable place to live for generations to come. We want to hear from you. Learn more here: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/planning-development/plan-amendments/sspa

Proposed Changes to the Fairfax County Zoning Ordinance
The Zoning Ordinance of Fairfax County contains the regulations that prescribe the way land can be divided and used in order to promote the health, safety, and general welfare of the public and to implement the adopted Comprehensive Plan for the orderly and controlled development of Fairfax County. The Zoning Ordinance specifies acceptable uses (residential, commercial, or industrial), density of uses, building heights, placement of buildings (setbacks from lot lines), and parking.
