Beginning Monday, May 17, 2021, Fairfax County’s Public Facilities Manual (PFM) transitioned to a new domain to provide an enhanced user experience. Please update any links or bookmarks to the new web address:

We hope you like the new layout and approach for accessing design details and site development guidelines for Fairfax County.

The Public Facilities Manual (PFM) sets forth the guidelines which govern the design of all public facilities which must be constructed to serve new development. It is intended to serve as a technical manual in the effort to implement the requirements of the Subdivision and Zoning ordinances and other applicable chapters of the Code of the County of Fairfax, Virginia (County Code).

The PFM is subject to periodic revisions upon action by the Board of Supervisors. The PFM presented here includes all amendments adopted by the Board through Oct. 20, 2020. If you have any questions or comments regarding the PFM, please contact the Site Code Research and Development Branch at 703-324-1780, TTY 711.

The PFM is available in portable document format (PDF). This manual is no longer available in hard copy format.
