Authors: Richard Etlin (2004)
Synopsis: Joel Garreau's book "Edge City" made Tysons Corner synonymous with auto-centric sprawl, yet the Tysons Corner Comprehensive Plan aims to transform the area into a pedestrian- and transit-friendly downtown for Fairfax, Virginia. This report by Distinguished University of Maryland Professor, Richard Etlin, proposes 15 recommendations to improve upon the comprehensive plan and realize a new vision for development in Tysons Corner.
