Falls Church City Council to Review Housing, Demographics Proposals

The Falls Church City Council will hold public hearings tonight (Monday) on proposed housing and demographics guidelines as the city looks to offer more affordable housing.

The Comprehensive Plan’s chapters for both areas haven’t been updated since 2005, according to city staff.

The new demographics chapter would focus on three areas: trends, projections and how changes relate to community needs, especially for housing, economic development and public facilities.

“Demographics are a critical base of information for city planning; the city’s housing, transportation, economy, parks and recreation, and social framework rely on current and future population trends and need,” according to city documents.

Meanwhile, the revamped housing chapter would outline a vision for how the city can address diverse housing needs through nine focus points.

The city’s Planning Commission voted in favor of both updates at its meeting last Monday, Aug. 5.

The city council meeting is set to start at 7:30 p.m. at 300 Park Avenue.
