Planning For Density Impacts

A 2007 memo from the Fairfax County Public Schools Office of Facilities Planning Services to the Fairfax County Department of Planning & Zoning Zoning Evaluation Division has been added the Resource Center best practices database. This document shows how density affects planning for new students and new schools in Fairfax County, VA. Specifically, the document shows the specific ratios of students that will be generated by a new dense development. This is an example that cities and school districts can follow when discussing higher density housing additions to the community, and the expenses that result.
