Fairfax County, Virginia: Comprehensive Plan Amendment Open Nomination Period Begins Soon

September 23, 2022

The site-specific plan amendment (SSPA) process starts Oct. 3, 2022. The Fairfax County Department of Planning and Development has released a nominator guide, which includes a detailed description of the SSPA process, as well as specific submission criteria and requirements for submitting plan amendment nominations.

The open nomination period runs from Oct. 3-28, 2022. This opportunity to change the Comprehensive Plan land-use designation or site-specific language is anticipated to occur only every two years.

SSPA submissions will not be impacted by the county’s online submission system shutdown from Oct. 21-31.

McGuireWoods has closely followed the creation and adoption of this new SSPA process and is available to discuss eligible sites and development strategies with you to take advantage of this revised SSPA process.
