City of Fairfax, VA : Fairfax Boulevard Master Plan

Does anyone know if this Master Plan will ever happen? The last draft for the plan was back in 2007.

"The City had so many pots on the fire, they stopped doing sub-plans. They turned instead to a 2-step process of developing a single master plan. Amendments to the old plans were completed and released in April 2012. Updates re Fairfax Boulevard are included in that document as Appendix D. Phase-2 drafts for new master plan elements are not complete at this point."

I worked on the 2007 master plan. It's not going to happen.

The City's debt load has been maxed out ever since the 2008 market crash. Financing the Fairfax Boulevard project would require a series of big bond issues, and it's just not politically viable to do that for a long-term, speculative project right now.

I'm curious about this too though I don't know much about it. All I know is that I heard retail won't be happening now and it will just be residential/condos. The only business that will remain is the Dunkin Donuts.

I had wondered why the Staples had ditched that center for farther south.
