Prince William County SealPRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA . . .  The Planning Office will host a kickoff workshop regarding the Potomac Communities Design Guidelines on Thursday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m. in the Hylton Education Center on the Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center Campus in Conference Room B. Parking is available in the Visitor and Hylton Education Center Parking Area.

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 product. The guidelines will be utilized by Planning staff in negotiations with private industry as redevelopment proposals come forth. This project will serve as the foundation for the design of future development activity and land use controls along the Route 1 corridor.

The kickoff workshop will include a brief presentation introducing the project, as well as a display of visuals to offer the public an opportunity to voice comments and recommendations.

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 2000s with the Board of County Supervisor’s support of the Potomac Communities Revitalization and the Urban Land Institute’s Potomac Communities report.
