Meeting Notice: Fairfax Center Area Phase II Working Group Meeting – November 4, 2015


Phase II of the Fairfax Center Area Study is now underway. This phase focuses on Comprehensive Plan recommendations for within the Fairfax Center Area. The Comprehensive Plan is used as a guide in decision-making about the built and natural environment by the county's Board of Supervisors and other agencies. It is a long-range document, providing recommendations for the next 20-30 years. An areawide Working Group has been formed to review submissions for proposed Comprehensive Plan changes and provide guidance during this phase of the study.

The first of these proposed changes involves the Centrepoint Church property on Legato Road. More information on what is proposed can be found on the study website. The second proposed change involves the Fairfax Towne Center, which was previously authorized as a separate Plan amendment in 2014. You can visit the website for this Plan amendment to read more details on what is proposed.


These presentations are for informational purposes as the Working Group begins a discussion on future land use within this area. You are invited to attend this meeting, which will be held on Wednesday, November 4, 2015, to hear more about these ideas.
