Thursday, Nov. 8, 2018, from 7 to 9 p.m., McLean High School Cafeteria, 1633 Davidson Road, McLean. This open house will focus on a refined draft of the vision plan, which will be an illustrative site plan of downtown McLean incorporating input from the first open house.
The county is working with consultant Streetsense to assist in this visioning process. The firm conducted three public workshops in June that focused on market influences and development decision making; planning, design and placemaking; and community immersion and understanding.

The community’s input from these three sessions shaped the draft plans that will be presented at the upcoming open houses.

Later this fall, a final vision plan will be produced after compiling and analyzing community input received at the open houses. The study’s task force, whichMcLean Community Business Center map. is made up of McLean residents, will then work with county staff to translate this vision into recommendations for changes to the Comprehensive Plan. The task force’s monthly meetings are open to the public.

Fairfax County is conducting this community-driven study to examine revitalization opportunities for the downtown holistically. While downtown McLean has seen some revitalization—such as undergrounding of utilities, landscape and streetscape improvements, and construction of several development projects—it’s been 20 years since the last comprehensive review of the downtown’s land use plan. The process will consider changes to land uses, development intensities, transportation and public facilities.

The study focuses on the 230-acre area that’s called the McLean Community Business Center in the county’s Comprehensive Plan. More commonly called downtown McLean, this is the area centered around the intersection of Chain Bridge Road and Old Dominion Drive. This area has long been planned to serve as a focal point for residents, with a mix of residential and community-serving commercial uses.

For more information about the study, future meetings or reasonable ADA accommodations, contact Katrina Newtson with Fairfax County Department of Planning and Zoning at 703-324-1380 or by email.
