Fairfax Forward replaced the Area Plan Review as the method to change the Comprehensive Plan Language. MVCCA has complained formally that the new process did not have ample citizen input. The BOS and Planning Commission (PC) heard us. The staff will tell us about the changes to Fairfax Forward to incorporate citizen input.

At the end of the meeting we will develop our formal response. 

Therefore, you and the members of your community who sit on MVCCA committees should attend to provide comments.
