Shaping the Future Together: Fairfax County Launches Strategic Planning Effort


What does the future of Fairfax County look like?

Fairfax County Government is beginning a strategic planning process with the community to shape the future together. Our goal is to hear all voices and reach all segments of our community.

What are hopes and aspirations for the future of our community? What challenges do we face and what priorities must we address first?

This effort will span most of 2019, but in this first phase, the community is being asked to:

  1. Take a short five-question online survey
  2. Consider joining a community conversation in person between Feb. 13 and March 6
  3. Share the survey and conversation invitation with neighbors, co-workers and county family and friends

As the strategic planning process unfolds, Fairfax County will have:

  • Defined a clear understanding of the county’s priorities for 2020 and beyond, organized around a set of 7-10 priority areas that we will seek additional input on later this year
  • Developed a set of community-centric, quantifiable, and meaningful key performance indicators for each outcome/priority area
  • Prioritized strategies and implementation paths that will be pursued to achieve the outcomes and “move the needle” on the key performance indicators
  • Integrated other important county planning efforts such as the economic success strategy, Fairfax County Public Schools strategic plan, One Fairfax and more
  • Completed the strategic plan by January 2020 that will create a roadmap for Fairfax County to achieve the desired outcomes of the community



"There's going to be one set of county priorities that will be generated by the community and staff and endorsed by the Board of Supervisors," explains County Executive Bryan Hill, who has made developing a countywide strategic plan a priority since his arrival in January 2018.
