Fairfax County is creating Urban Design Guidelines for the Richmond Highway corridor. The Guidelines provide details on many of the recommendations described in the Embark Comprehensive Plan including the appearance and function of streets, parks and plazas, and other elements of the public realm.
To kick this project off, the County invites everyone in the community to participate in an Urban Design Workshop to share their design ideas for Richmond Highway.
