Dale City Small Area Plan Approved!
Happy New Year, we finally have significant progress to report! Thanks to hard work by County staff and community involvement and support much was accomplished during the second half of 2019 that will benefit the Dale City area and Neabsco District. These accomplishments include the approval of the Dale City Small Area Plan by both the Planning Commission and the County Board of Supervisors. In addition, the Prince William County residents voted to approve both the Park Improvement Bond Referendum and the Mobility/Road Improvement Bond Referendum. In this update we will highlight the Dale City Small Area Plan. Future updates will address the bond referendums and the potential benefits to the community and Quartz District.
The Dale City Small Area Plan was approved by the County Board of Supervisors on December 10, 2019. This process began with community stakeholder meetings in September 2018 and was followed by public town hall/charette sessions in March 2019. The function of this small area plan is to identify strategies to create opportunities to develop mixed-use communities in established areas of Dale City. Additionally, the plan will provide for improved pedestrian safety and connectivity and a sense of place.
This plan will benefit Prince William County by ensuring long-term economic and social viability through a series of achievable action strategies. The plan also addresses Prince William County's Strategic Plan goals and identifies necessary improvements to the multi-modal transportation network with a focus on safety and connectivity. As a result of this study, the County also hopes to highlight the potential for mixed-use communities, increased private sector investment, and improved transportation infrastructure.
We are excited that the Dale City Small Area Plan is now approved as a guide for making Quartz District a reality. Thank you all for the insightful input and ideas you’ve shared with us so far as your input is also very important to making Quartz District a success. Stay tuned for additional updates soon with information on the bond referendums and the transportation and recreation improvements that they will facilitate.
