Environmental Vision

Fairfax County’s environment is resilient, but not indestructible. Our vision recognizes that we have a responsibility to be good stewards to ensure a sustainable future.

While it is not an action plan, the vision is important because it helps to guide our environmental sustainability initiatives and programs. Two key principles direct the vision:

  • First, we must conserve our limited natural resources.
  • Second, we are committed to providing the resources needed to protect our environment.

The vision connects to how the county provides services, and it focuses on seven core service areas:

  • Land Use
  • Transportation
  • Water
  • Waste Management
  • Parks and Ecological Resources
  • Climate and Energy
  • Environmental Stewardship


The Board of Supervisors originally adopted a vision in 2004, and it was subsequently revised in 2007 and 2017. Extensive public input, including survey, public meetings and written comments and testimony was conducted as part of the 2017 update. The summary of public input is provided below:
