Tysons rezonings meeting - Updated 8/30/11

Several major Tysons rezoning applications will be coming before the Fairfax Co Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors in the coming months. One of the first set of applications will be heard by the Planning Commission on September 8.

As Tysons redevelops it's important that bicycle facilities are included in all Tysons projects. The Tysons Bicycle Master Plan was recently completed but has not been formally adopted by the Board, so the recommendations are not binding yet.

A public meeting to discuss these first rezoning applications will be held on September 1. Cyclists are encouraged to attend this information meeting to learn more about the application and to plan to testify in favor of bicycle facilities at the Sept. 8 public hearing. From Fairfax County:
The first rezonings under the new Comprehensive Plan for Tysons are scheduled for a public hearing at the Fairfax County Planning Commission on September 8. These applications are RZ 2010-PR-014A and 014B, Georgelas Group LLC, which are located near the future Tysons Spring Hill Metro Station. We would like to invite the public to an informational meeting on the rezonings. The meeting will be held at the Vienna Town Hall, 127 Center Street South, on Thursday, September 1 at 7:30 pm. The applicant and Fairfax County staff will be on hand to review the rezoning proposals and to answer questions. The staff report for the applications will be available on the county website.

Linda Smyth, Providence District Supervisor
John Foust, Dranesville District Supervisor
Cathy Hudgins, Hunter Mill District Supervisor
See the Fairfax County Active Zoning Applications Interactive Map which allows you to zoom to the Tysons area, select parcels, and display application information. I was not able to list info for the 014B application (an error message appeared).

Update: See additional information on these applications on the Fairfax Co website.
