The Plan was designed to take advantage of the four new Metro stations coming to Tysons in 2014. The Plan is to transform Tysons, by the year 2050, into a walkable, green urban center and home to up to 100,000 residents and 200,000 jobs. Tysons is envisioned as Fairfax County's "downtown," or a 24-hour urban center where people live, work and play. Three-quarters of future growth will be within a half-mile of the stations. Many offices and homes will be a 3 - 6-minute walk from the stations, allowing people to get around on foot, bicycle, bus, or subway.
The Tysons Plan was developed over several years through an inclusive process of County staff working with a team of consultants, as well as with appointed officials, citizens, and other stakeholders. The Plan was also created based on economic, transportation and fiscal analyses. For details about the Tysons planning process see the Plan Timeline page.
