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 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.

Connecting the Dots

Communities of Opportunity Dashboard

Through the Countywide Strategic Plan, the county’s vision is that all neighborhoods in Fairfax County will be communities of opportunity. As the Countywide Strategic Plan is implemented, we will focus on transforming areas where residents face economic, educational, health, housing, and other challenges to accessing opportunity more broadly. This dashboard offers two tools that display the variation in access to opportunity and wellbeing across the county: the Communities of Opportunity Index and the Communities of Opportunity Equity Map. 


The #FairfaxForward campaign highlights positive news on social media and communications platforms. There are several Countywide Strategic Plan Community Outcome Areas spotlighted, including Economic Opportunity and Environment and Energy. Be sure to check it out!
