Background information from Fairfax County McLean CBC Study webpage:
In an effort to reimagine the vision for the McLean Community Business Center (CBC), Fairfax County kicked off the McLean CBC Study in May 2018 with a community visioning process. Community input from the visioning process workshops and guidance from a consultant resulted in the creation of a Vision Plan which was finalized in December 2018. The Vision Plan is the framework for considering changes to the Comprehensive Plan recommendations for the CBC.
County staff has been working with Task Force members and the community at regular meetings to discuss changes to the Comprehensive Plan for the McLean CBC, using the Vision Plan as a primary guide. Task Force discussions on new draft Plan text began in February 2020. The recommendations will continue to be discussed in the months to come. Those who live or work in downtown McLean and the surrounding area are highly encouraged to get involved and share feedback on the proposed changes to the Comprehensive Plan for the McLean CBC.
Once all public input has been shared with Task Force members and all recommendations have been considered, county staff will work with Task Force members to finalize recommended changes to the Comprehensive Plan. Based on the current schedule, the final recommended Comprehensive Plan for the McLean CBC will be presented during public hearings to the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors the first quarter of 2021. Once scheduled, the public hearing dates and more information about the hearings will be provided here.
