The Site-Specific Plan Amendment Process (SSPA) is an opportunity to participate in Fairfax County's land use planning process by submitting proposals (called Nominations) to amend the Area Plan volumes of the Comprehensive Plan (the Plan) and/or the Comprehensive Land Use Plan Map through the Plan Amendment Work Program. The Comprehensive Plan is the guide used by the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors to make land use decisions.
The SSPA process, including the appointment of Task Force members, is organized by the County's Supervisor Districts. In the 2017 SSPA cycle, Comprehensive Plan land use guidance for the northern portion of the County, including the Dranesville, Hunter Mill, Providence and Sully Supervisor Districts, was reviewed. The map on the right depicts the locations of the nine supervisor districts within Fairfax County (click on the map to enlarge).
