The Site-Specific Plan Amendment (SSPA) Process 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 2019 SSPA cycle, Comprehensive Plan land use guidance for the southern portion of the County, including the Braddock, Lee, Mason, Mount Vernon and Springfield Supervisor Districts is being reviewed. For more information, please refer to the Guide to the 2019-2020 South County Site-Specific Plan Amendment Process.
