Walking Distance Research

The Fairfax County, VA, Planning Commission TOD Committee, established in May 2006, was a special committee of the Planning Commission which sponsored an open and visible process to gather input on a consensus vision and guidance on Fairfax County Transit-Oriented Development (TOD).   The Committee's goal was to recommend language to the Board of Supervisors and County staff for use in a Policy Plan Amendment (STO7-CW-ICP) that provided a standardized definition and set of guiding principles for Transit-Oriented Development in Fairfax County.

As part of this work, the committee gathered a summary of Walking Distance Research as of that date. The list includes:

  • Qualitative Studies/Statements
  • TOD Manuals from Other Jurisdictions/Transit Agencies
  • Quantitative Studies
