Fairfax Suburbanista

Making growth work in Fairfax

About

Fairfax Suburbanista is for people who live and/or work in Fairfax County, Virginia and who want to help create a more livable place with a vibrant public life, walkable and bikeable communities, good access to transit, and a greater diversity of housing options for the county’s full range of residents and workers.

More growth is coming to Fairfax County, and just saying “No” is not an option. In fact, growth is an opportunity to make Fairfax a much better place. Fairfax has extraordinary assets — a strong economy, a diverse and highly educated population, and expanding cultural opportunities. The county’s population and its cultural mix have changed, grown and been enriched. Our built environment needs to change too.

The site is intended to provide a positive, though also critical, vision of how the county can improve its land use and transportation to make growth work.

    Hello,

    If you don’t mind me asking, I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions concerning this old fantasy transportation map:

    Please let me know, thank you.

    We are a new group of Burke Centre residents that is working to get safe pedestrian access across Burke Centre Parkway. Our Facebook page went live this week – Burke Walks Safe and Green. We would love to be in touch with you to see how we can work together.

    Thanks. Lauren and Andrew Lentz
