About the Study

About the StudyOn March 8, 1993 the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors adopted the Dulles Suburban Center Plan and established a vision for the future growth and development of this area. This Plan, which resulted from a Board initiated review of the Comprehensive Plan for the Route 28 Tax District Area, set plan boundaries that correspond closely to that of the Route 28 Tax District which was established by Virginia statute in December 1987. The Route 28 Tax District consists of parcels in both Fairfax and Loudoun Counties and was created to provide for extensive private sector participation in paying for road improvements needed to serve airport-related economic development.

The Dulles Suburban Center study will evaluate the Comprehensive Plan for the area to verify that factual information is current, determine if existing plan recommendations remain consistent with current policy and practice, and assess the potential for alternative land use opportunities in this area. During the Dulles Suburban Center study staff will be working directly with community residents, local businesses and area landowners to gather input that will assist with this plan evaluation and development. The study will likely include editorial updates, an evaluation of existing land use recommendations for the study area, and the potential for additional changes to the plan. Below is a timeline highlighting future milestones in the study:
