DEC 1, 2020 — Tysons, VA — Tysons Partnership sincerely appreciates Fairfax County’s support for Tysons as an economic engine for the County and region. The Board of Supervisors vote today to invest additional economic opportunity funds in Tysons enables the Partnership to continue supporting growth in Tysons and delivering value through placemaking, research planning & economic development, transportation & mobility solutions, and place branding.
With the promise of 2021 looming, we look forward to the recovery of our community, continuing to welcome new residents and employers while also welcoming back our many visitors. As the threat to public health hopefully recedes, we’ll see more public events and place activations, the launch of our new city brand, and continued foundational work toward a walkable and mobile urban center. We will also build on our reputation as a thought leader in the urban space, and as a convener and facilitator for coordination and integration between the public and private sectors.
As we look to the start of our second decade since the County’s adoption of the Comprehensive Plan for Tysons, we recognize also the Board of Supervisors’ continued commitment to work with the Partnership toward building a more robust, deeper capacity public-private partnership model. As our community looks to recover from the dramatic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the partnership model will well-position the Tysons Partnership to lead economic recovery efforts and serve as a catalyst for continued implementation of the urban vision expressed in the County’s Comprehensive Plan.
