Tysons Draft Plan - Jan 15 2010

Tysons Draft Plan - Jan 15 2010

Published by TysonsTomorrow
Imagine a Tysons Corner built for people, not cars. As envisioned by the Tysons Land Use Task Force, Tysons will become a livable and vibrant urban center where people live, work, play, shop, worship, and even retire.

Tysons will be transformed from a textbook case of suburban sprawl into a true 21st century urban center that addresses the challenges of sustainable growth, energy conservation, environmental protection, affordable housing, and safe communities.

In September 2008 the Task Force presented its Vision and Areawide Recommendations to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors who voted unanimously to accept the recommendations and to refer them to the Planning Commission and Planning staff for the development of detailed Comprehensive
Plan text.

At the Board’s direction, the Planning Commission established a five member Tysons Committee to lead the efforts to complete the Comprehensive Plan amendment. The committee listened to dozens of stakeholder presentations and heard the results of public facility and transportation analyses at recent meetings. Upcoming meetings of the committee will focus on issues and topics contained in the Draft Straw Man of Plan text. Presentations and handouts from the Planning Commission Committee meetings will be posted on their web site.
