Fall 2020 Meeting on Tysons
Planning & Zoning Committee Chair Rob Jackson announced that he is working with Supervisors John Foust and Dalia Palchik to have an MCA members meeting open to the public on Tysons 10 Years after the Revised Comprehensive Plan was adopted by the County. Fall 2020 would be the time for the meeting, assuming COVID-19 restrictions are removed/relaxed and the community is returning to normal. If restrictions remain, appropriate adjustments will be made.
In June 2020, the Board of Supervisors for Fairfax County approved major changes to the Comprehensive Plan for Tysons. That started a wave of rezoning applications and construction in what is likely the largest redevelopment plan in the United States. More than 1700 acres are affected. The changes have had major impacts (both pro and con) on our roads, transit, parks, open space, schools, police and fire, storm water management systems and virtually everything else in the northern portion of Fairfax County.
After ten years of development, what do the Providence and Dranesville Supervisors think of where Tysons is today, What have we learned? What has been successful? What has not worked as well as expected?
As we navigate our path through the pandemic, while continuing to review land use cases and provide community input on applications, we will also work on this event. Further information will be forthcoming.
