Potomac Communities Design Guidelines Study

In 2008, the “Potomac Communities Revitalization Plan” was completed and is currently included as a sector plan in the County Comprehensive Plan. This planning effort was the culmination of a movement which occurred over a number of years but formally began in the early 2000’s with support by the Board of County Supervisors for the Potomac Communities Revitalization and the Urban Land Institute’s Potomac Communities report.

In a continuing effort to capture the full potential of the Route 1 corridor in eastern Prince William County, the Planning Office recently hired Parsons Brinckerhoff to complete the Potomac Communities Design Guidelines Project.

The Potomac Communities Design Guidelines Study will consist of a three-pronged approach to accomplish the task of preparing guidelines of built urban design recommendations for the various segments of Route 1. Problem definition and research, stakeholder input and thematic design guidelines are all integral components in the process of providing the project. The guidelines will be utilized by Planning Staff in negotiations with private industry as redevelopment proposals come forth. This project will serves as the foundation for the design of future development activity and land use controls along the Route 1 corridor.

The Planning Office has established milestones which include holding a series of stakeholder working group public meetings. Dates of the schedule milestones are tentative and are subject to change. Additional information will be communicated as it becomes available.
