McLean Community Business Center Study

Locator map of Mclean Community Business Center StudyOn April 10, 2018 the Board of Supervisors authorized a Comprehensive Plan (Plan) amendment to review the recommendations for the McLean Community Business Center (CBC).

The McLean CBC Study (Plan Amendment 2018-II-M1) will review recommendations for future land uses, development intensities, transportation, public facilities and urban design within the CBC. The last full review of the Comprehensive Plan recommendations for the CBC occurred in 1998, and the community and the county recognized the need to update the Plan recommendations.  The McLean CBC is approximately 230 acres and is centered around the intersection of Old Dominion Drive and Chain Bridge Road and is located south of Dolley Madison Boulevard (Route 123).

McLean CBC Planning Study Workshops


Community Workshops

The study will include various steps along the way before updated Plan recommendations are developed. There will be many opportunities to participate between June and November.

The first step in the process will be a series of workshops in June (listed below) to begin to develop a community vision for future development in the McLean CBC.

The first two meetings will focus on establishing a common understanding around the topics of real estate economics and neighborhood planning with particular emphasis on how these issues can align with community objectives in the McLean CBC. The third meeting will utilize information from the first two workshops to investigate various design and development options for the area. The meetings will be led by a consultant team and will result in a final vision report, vetted by the community that a task force and the county will then use to develop Plan recommendations.

We invite you to attend all of these workshops to learn about and to participate in planning for the future of the McLean CBC.

Childcare is available for children five and older. Please contact Amy Ordonez two business days prior to the workshop date to reserve a space for your child, or (703) 787-4962.
