Planning Commission’s Tysons Committee
This five-member committee was initially formed to work with county staff to draft detailed Comprehensive Plan text. Since the 2010 Plan adoption, this committee’s work has focused on Plan implementation recommendations and land use issues/topics of interest to Tysons.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors directed county staff to work with stakeholders to create a partnership organization that could be in place prior to any redevelopment activity in Tysons. On January 25, 2011, members of the Tysons Partnership presented an organizational structure and activities to the Board of Supervisors. The Partnership successfully served the needs of Tysons for many years. In 2021, as Tysons has grown and changed since Plan adoption, the County, the Tysons Partnership, and community stakeholders formed a work group to explore alternative business and funding models to ensure a sustainable anchor organization that meets the current needs of and supports the growing Tysons community. It is anticipated that the new anchor organization will be established and operational by November 2022.
