Learn more about Fairfax County's initiative - developed through County staff, the Planning Commission Environment Committee and the Environmental Quality Advisory Council - to develop criteria for a regulatory approach to extending riparian buffers upstream of Resource Protection Areas (RPAs).
This project has included two meetings to engage the public in discussions of concerns and considerations that should be taken into account, such as how far upstream, buffer width, type of vegetation and allowed uses. A Work Group is using this information to develop recommendations.
