Fairfax County Smart Growth platform
Fairfax is a great place to live, combining great schools, parks, and community services in a socio-economically diverse community. The county is also facing important challenges with a weak office market, aging commercial corridors, housing affordability, and a heavily impacted environment, including degraded streams.
