The growth of Fairfax County, Virginia is examined. County planning must be an accomodation between continued residential demand and the retainment of the historic, scenic, and environmental character of the county. Fairfax County has developed a response to the problem of rapid growth through the organization of a Planning and Land-Use System (PLUS), which will be capable of generating continuously updated data, policy alternatives, flexible responsive plans, implementation programs, and an effective set of regulatory measures for the county.
