An Update on Adding Flexibility to Fairfax County's Public Facilities Manual (PFM)

  1. 1. An Update on Adding Flexibility to Fairfax County’s Public Facilities Manual (PFM) Setting a new standard 10/31/2017 Fairfax County PFM Flex Project 1
  2. 2. Goal Three of the Strategic Plan for the Economic Success of Fairfax County: “Improve the Speed, Consistency and Predictability of the Land Development Review Process.” Gartner Study Finding: “Complexities and inconsistencies with land use and development policies and regulations hamper predictability and efficiency of service delivery.”  Changing nature of development - more intense land development.  More redevelopment/infill development vs. greenfield development.  New technology.  More environmental regulations. In short, a more flexible PFM will allow staff to utilize good engineering judgment to approve context sensitive solutions. 2Fairfax County PFM Flex Project10/31/2017 WHY ARE WE UPDATING THE PFM?
  3. 3. Strategic Plan for the Economic Success of Fairfax County Goal 3 Vision Statement Vision Element Strategic Recommendation 5 Gartner’s Study Tactical Recommendation 5-4: • “The Public Facilities Manual (PFM) should be a design guide that is consistent and meets the language of the law while providing flexibility for engineering judgment, particularly with regard to new technology and new development situations.” • In other words, flexibility will be applied in targeted situations such as innovative and urban standards. Not all PFM provisions are flexible. 3Fairfax County PFM Flex Project10/31/2017 WHY ADD “FLEXIBILITY”?
  4. 4. The term “flexibility” as it is intended for use in the PFM Flex Project is defined as: • The ability to target selective provisions; NOT broad or general. • The ability to modify text to respond to altered circumstances or conditions; allowing alternative designs that meet the intent. • According to Gartner, “Flexibility” means, “adding the qualities of agility, ease of use, and consistency to the PFM.” • Ensuring relevance to respond to evolving and urbanizing development patterns. 4Fairfax County PFM Flex Project10/31/2017 WHAT DOES “FLEXIBILITY” MEAN?
