Fairfax panel backs Tysons plans
The Fairfax County Planning Commission early Friday endorsed long-awaited plans that would enable Tysons Corner to transform from an auto-dependent office park into a urban, walkable city.
The commission, which voted to support the plan in a 10 to 1 vote, debated for more than four hours before arriving at a decision around 12:45 a.m.
Their recommendations now go to the Board of Supervisors, which has the authority to approve the plan.
The commission's endorsement slashes the planning period from 40 years to 20, and places no limits on residential development but caps growth in office space through 2030.
The Board of Supervisors is scheduled to hold its public hearing on June 22, and adopt a plan sometime in the summer.
