Fairfax County is the largest jurisdiction in Virginia and the Washington region with over 1.1 million people. To accommodate expected future growth, manage traffic, and provide vibrant communities, CSG promotes transit-oriented redevelopment of the County’s aging commercial corridors and vast parking lots as a better way to grow. Providing mixed income housing opportunities close to quality transit, and safer streets for walking and biking  is the most equitable and sustainable way for the county to grow and provide opportunities for all.

Creating safe and connected ways to walk and bike in Fairfax County will take a strong vision and solid plan to overcome the disconnected and dangerous conditions we face today. That’s why the ActiveFairfax Transportation Plan is so important. Let’s make sure Fairfax County knows there is strong support for making active transportation a safe and viable option to get around our communities. Learn More >>>

West Falls Church Transit-Oriented Development

Plans are underway in Fairfax County to transform acres of parking lots at the West Falls Church Metro Station into a mixed-use community with enhanced transit, inclusive housing opportunities, new bike/ped connections, open space and linear parks, and upgraded stormwater management. All this would complement and connect to the City of Falls Church’s new high school and mixed-use redevelopment already underway. Together these projects will create a new inclusive, vibrant, and livable neighborhood in West Falls Church. Learn More >>>

Embark Richmond Highway

Embark Richmond Highway is a comprehensive plan amendment for the Richmond Highway corridor in Fairfax County calling for transit-oriented development around the planned Bus Rapid Transit stations and significant bicycle and pedestrian improvements. Redevelopment will offer opportunities for upgraded stormwater management and other environmental improvements too. But we need to get it right! CSG is working with partners in the corridor to address community concerns about displacement and pushing for needed safety improvements along this dangerous roadway. Learn more >>>
