Revision of McLean Downtown Comprehensive Plan
Plans are underway to amend the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan (Comp Plan) for the McLean Community Business Center (CBC). The McLean CBC, also referred to as downtown McLean, is one of 13 CBCs in Fairfax County. The McLean CBC Task Force was established to consider and offer recommendations for changes to the Comprehensive Plan guidance for the McLean CBC. The County has setup the CBC Study Website with information on the study, including plans, meeting summaries, presentations, and submissions.
The County Comp Plan is used as a guide to decision making about land use and the Zoning Ordinance is used to implement the Adopted Comprehensive Plan. The current approved CBC Comp Plan is available on the County Planning site - Current McLean CBC Comp Plan. McLean CBC zoning information is in the Fairfax County Zoning Ordinance, beginning on page A7-19 of Appendix 7 - McLean CBC Zoning Ordinance
Neighbors are encouraged to review this study to understand how it may impact our community – changes for the better or not. Please submit any questions or comments regarding the McLean CBC Study to the Red Comment button below or send an email to SVCA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
