Fairfax County Strategic Planning Enters The Think Tank

A series of meetings are underway with public participation in Fairfax County that will address the long term strategic planning of the county. Many people gathered at a cafeteria to attend the first of the county’s strategic plan meetings across the county to make a plan for Fairfax County in years to come. The first set of these meetings began in February and this was the second series of such meetings. This set of meetings will end this December when the planners hand the plan over to the Board of Supervisors for finalization.

Each group focused on one of nine topics

According to Springfield Connection, “The planners, led by James Patterson, manager of countywide strategic planning, divided the county’s expectations into nine categories as they wrestle this enormous task into conceivable terms. The nine categories ranging from economic opportunity to safety and security, but in the first of several steps, everyone was looking at the issues from 30,000 feet – issues that will be put under a microscope further down the road of this process.

The Fairfax County Strategic Plan was subtitled “Shaping the Future Together,” and laid out nine subtopics impacting everyone in the county. It was presented in a booklet that each participant took as they went to the various stations to discuss the intricacies. There were survey cards to fill out at each station, and questions to bring up that got the conversation going. All the data and comments will be compiled in the end.”

As per Springfield Connection, “Although most things “county,” are budget-dependent, the dollar topic is so far into the future that the budget wasn’t part of the discussion. A rough draft of the wants and needs will be put together in the November-December time frame, and then presented to the Board of Supervisors after that, and it will be worked into the plan sometime after that. The plan may go into place ten to twenty years from now, officials said.”
