zMod - Modernization of Fairfax County’s Zoning Ordinance - Updating PDH Districts



Updating the Regulations for Planned Development Housing Districts

Zoning Ordinance ModernizationAs a second priority, the county’s planners intend to overhaul the planned development housing zoning districts.

These districts created in the 1980s were intended for larger housing subdivisions in greenfields. In recent years, however, this zoning category has been used for smaller, infill developments.

Among other things, this has created long-term issues for homeowners when restrictions are placed on how they can use their yards and maintenance issues when a limited number of homes can include the responsibility to own and maintain features like retaining walls, athletic facilities and roads.
