Countywide Strategic Plan

Fairfax County employees work hard every day to provide the quality services that make Fairfax a great place to live, work and play. The Countywide Strategic Plan was adopted on October 5, 2021, and serves as a road map to help guide our future work together. Focusing on the 10 Community Outcome Areas that represent the issues of greatest importance to the community, the plan sets a clear, unified, community-driven vision for the next 10-20 years.
