Bailey’s Crossroads Land Use Concept Presentation
A presentation on the preferred land use concept for a portion of the Baileys Crossroads Community Business Center will be held Thursday, April 15 at 9 p.m. in the Goodwin House Auditorium in Falls Church.
The concept is intended to stimulate revitalization and take advantage of the proposed streetcar route to run between the Business Center and Pentagon City. It features more mixed-used development; easier pedestrian, bicycle and transit rider access; and increased green spaces. Future development also would be compatible with the surrounding neighborhoods. The preferred concept will be used to recommend changes to Fairfax County’s Comprehensive Plan. Later this year, both the Fairfax County Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors will hold public hearings on these recommendations. The auditorium is located at 3440 S. Jefferson Street in Falls Church. For more information, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov.
