Countywide Policy Plan Update
PLUS Record Number:
Countywide Policy Plan Amendment
On December 6, 2022, the Board of Supervisors authorized the consideration of a Comprehensive Plan amendment to update the Countywide Policy Plan. The Countywide Policy Plan consists of the following elements: Preface and Introduction, Land Use, Transportation, Housing, Environment, Economic Development, Heritage Resources, Public Facilities, Human Services, Parks and Recreation, Revitalization, and Visual and Performing Arts. The goals of a complete Policy Plan Update are to:
- review, update, and streamline existing Policy Plan elements;
- add new Policy Plan elements as needed; and
- ensure the Policy Plan is in alignment with the Countywide Strategic Plan, the One Fairfax Policy, and other recently adopted policies and initiatives.
As part of the initial effort, recognizing that there will be overlap with other Policy Plan elements, staff anticipates focusing on the Land Use, Environment, and Transportation elements, and the potential addition of Equity and Community Health policies to the Policy Plan.
