Assessed Value in Activity Centers

Indicator

Description: Fairfax County’s goal is to concentrate new development in mixed-use centers, including commercial revitalization districts (CRDs).  Collectively, these areas are also referred to as activity centers. Dense development is a more efficient use of land, leveraging investment in public infrastructure.  The density/colocation creates a vibrant, desirable destination, which usually correlates to higher real estate values because of the popularity of such locations and the amenities typically offered. 

Performance Measure: Total Assessed Value per Acre (Activity Centers) measures the percent increase or decrease in the collective assessed value per acre for all activity centers. 

Data: Interactive Map – Assessed Value of Activity Centers

Interpretation: The total acreage of all activity centers in 2017 was 39,323.6 acres.   The total assessed value per acre of all activity centers increased by 3.0% between 2016 and 2017.
