About Supervisor Bierman

James N. Bierman, Jr. ('Jimmy') was born and raised in McLean. His love for the Dranesville community started at an early age when he was first learning to swim at Spring Hill Rec Center and checking out books at the Dolley Madison Library. After earning degrees at Williams College and Stanford Law School, Supervisor Bierman knew he wanted to return to McLean to raise his own family and ensure they were afforded the same opportunities. Supervisor Bierman lives with his wife, two children, and two rescue dogs in McLean.


Potential Changes for Data Center Regulations

On March 19, 2024, the Board of Supervisors directed staff to prepare a Zoning Ordinance amendment to strengthen the current provisions for data centers. Public hearings are scheduled before the Planning Commission on June 5, 2024 and before the Board of Supervisors on July 16, 2024. Visit the Department of Planning and Development website for additional information about the proposed amendment and upcoming meetings. 

FY 2025 Budget Meetings

Supervisor Bierman held two Dranesville Budget Town Hall meetings to provide residents with the opportunity to learn, ask questions, and provide feedback on the advertised FY 25 Budget proposal. Supervisor Bierman was joined by School Board member Robyn Lady, Fairfax County Department of Management and Budget staff and Fairfax County Public Schools budget staff. During both meetings, many interested residents attended and heard detailed budget presentations and shared feedback about budget issues. Supervisor Bierman extends his gratitude to all who attended.

Downtown McLean Development

The Board of Supervisors adopted the Plan Amendment for the McLean Community Business Center (CBC) in June 2021. The McLean CBC is an approximately 230-acre area centered around the intersection of Chain Bridge Road and Old Dominion Drive and is coterminous with the McLean Commercial Revitalization District.  

The McLean CBC serves as McLean’s “downtown” and is characterized by neighborhood-serving retail uses including shopping centers, automobile service stations, banks and restaurants, as well as office buildings and former residences converted to offices or retail establishments. In addition to commercial uses, the CBC is also developed with mid and high-rise multifamily buildings. Townhouses and single-family detached residences are located along the edges of the CBC.
