A community meeting is scheduled for later this month at South Lakes High School to discuss the formation of a countywide strategic housing plan.
The goals of the plan, according to Fairfax County, include:
- To create a shared community vision of how housing supports local economic growth and community sustainability
- To quantify the housing needed to sensibly accommodate future growth
- To develop specific, measurable and actionable strategies for meeting countywide housing goals
- To identify the program and policies, and specific funding sources, that will be required to address housing needs in 5, 10, and 15 years
The plan will be led by the county’s Department of Housing and Community Development, and the Affordable Housing Advisory Committee will oversee it. The community meeting at SLHS this month is part of a communication plan by HCD to “engage residents and stakeholders throughout the entire process.”
The stated goal of the HCD is to complete the strategic plan by December and implement it in 2018.
The meeting will be held Monday, April 17 at 7 p.m. in the lecture hall at the high school (11400 South Lakes Drive).
