The Volume II: District Design Guidelines for McLean will contain written and visual ideas for the design of streets, lighting, and the area fronting buildings. The guidelines will provide design direction to enhance the appearance of the McLean Commercial Revitalization District (CRD). It is a companion document to the Volume I: Urban Design Guidelines for Fairfax County Revitalization Districts and Areas. These two volumes are to be used together when proposing, designing, or reviewing development projects.
The Advisory Group is comprised of Directors and Alternate Directors who serve on the McLean Planning Committee. There are three individuals from each of the four MPC community stakeholder groups: the McLean Citizen's Association, Greater McLean Chamber of Commerce, Surrounding Citizens Associations, and Commercial Landowners. Monthly Advisory Group meetings occur on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. Meetings are held virtually and are open to the public. A meeting link and call-in information will be made available below before each meeting.
No upcoming meetings are scheduled. Staff are currently in the process of developing a draft Urban Design Guidelines document. The document will be posted for community review this Spring after the draft is reviewed by the Advisory Group.

Almost 100 people attended the workshop and 200 people responded to the survey. The results of the survey and workshop are being used to inform the recommendations in the McLean urban design guidelines.
