It's long been a sticking point for Fairfax County leaders who say they want to encourage "transit-oriented development;" no one has been able to agree on exactly what the term means. Now a set of draft guidelines from the county Planning Commission is being offered for public comment at a hearing scheduled for 8:15 p.m. on Jan. 17 at the Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Pkwy. The Fairfax Extra has a news article here.

So check out the guidelines Focus on Fairfax readers, and tell us, has the Planning Commission got it right?
