From Fairfax County: Fairfax County will hold a final community meeting and open house on Jan. 10, 2018, to present its proposed revisions to the Comprehensive Plan recommendations for the Richmond Highway Corridor area.
These recommendations will:
- Create a cohesive vision for the corridor that includes stewardship of the environmental and heritage resources;
- Prepare the corridor for pedestrian and bicycle enhancements, a planned bus rapid transit (BRT) system from Huntington to Accotink Village/Fort Belvoir and a future Yellow-line Metrorail extension to the Beacon/Groveton and Hybla Valley/Gum Springs areas; and,
- Create mixed-use, transit-oriented development around the nine BRT stations that support live-work-shop-play environments.
