Parking Reimagined

parking reimagined projectFairfax County staff from the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) and Land Development Services (LDS), are embarking on an initiative to review Article 6 of the Zoning Ordinance which regulates off-street parking and loading. While amendments to off-street parking and loading regulations have occurred over the years, to address certain uses and areas within the county, overall rates and regulations have not been comprehensively reviewed since 1988. This project, known as Parking Reimagined, aims to evaluate existing parking rates and determine if adjustment of parking rates to meet current demand is appropriate, while also examining County administration of parking regulations. Parking Reimagined will include an in-depth evaluation of off-street parking and loading rates and regulations. The goal of this effort is to modernize parking and loading requirements, creating greater flexibility in the provision of parking for current and future land uses. The initiative will involve an extensive analysis of parking and loading supply and demand factors, as well as local, regional, and, to some extent, national parking and loading trends. 

In conjunction with an analysis of parking by staff and our consultant, we will be conducting extensive outreach and listening sessions to gain important feedback from those impacted by parking and to survey the public on future proposed changes to parking and loading regulations. In the coming months, staff will be scheduling these meetings. Please see community engagement section below for more information on upcoming and past community engagement opportunities.
