McLean Community Business Center (CBC) Study


The McLean Community Business Center (CBC) Study is a land use planning study that will review recommendations for future land uses, development intensities, transportation, public facilities and urban design within the CBC. County staff has been working with Task Force members and the community at regular meetings to discuss changes to the Comprehensive Plan for the McLean CBC, using the Vision Plan as a primary guide. Task Force discussions on new draft Plan text began in February 2020. The recommendations will continue to be discussed in the months to come.

In an effort to reimagine the vision for the McLean Community Business Center (CBC), Fairfax County kicked off the McLean CBC Study in May 2018 with a community visioning process. Community input from the visioning process workshops and guidance from a consultant resulted in the creation of a Vision Plan which was finalized in December 2018. The Vision Plan is the framework for considering changes to the Comprehensive Plan recommendations for the CBC.
